I work in an NHS organisation and we would like to download and use your
software as it's been recommended to us.  However I've looked through
the licence agreement on the gimp website and although it appears to be
covered, our IT specialist have said that there are sometimes parts of
the system which use code from other suppliers which is not covered by
the same licensing agreement.  Could you assure me that it is ok for us
to use this software for free?

yes, it is.
Tell your specialist to read the acompaining "COPYING" file, which contains
the license for use and redistribution of the Software, the GPL v.3 -
Most of the text deals with redistributing the program - as for running,
the license simply states that:
This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
permission to run the unmodified Program.

Many thanks for your help,
