Neither the Department of Defence nor the Defence Forces share databases with the Department of Health. The Department of Defence would, on occasion, share information with the Department of Health in relation to the administration of individual retirement pensions for reasons such as the transfer of service to that Department or the application of abatement of pension. Such sharing of information would be specific to an individual scheme member, solely for the purposes of administering individual pension entitlements and would be permissible under the rules of the relevant pension schemes.

A small number of staff members who transferred over the years to the Department of Health would have had their personnel file transferred with them.

As requested, this information is portrayed in the following schedule.

Data sets Data bases File types
None None Records relating to pension issues affecting individual personnel and HR records on transfer of individual personnel
