The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) gives members of the public the right to request information that is held by public sector organisations such as NHS Trusts and local councils. You have the right to request information we hold under the FOIA.

The aim of the FOIA is to create a climate of openness in public services so that people can understand how operational decisions are made and how public funds are spent.

The FOIA does not permit the release of personal information such as health or employment records. If you require personal information held by the Trust, please submit a Subject Access request under the Data Protection Act 2018.

The FOIA covers all information held in a recorded format. The deadline to respond to requests made under the FOIA is 20 working days, although there are some circumstances where this may be extended under the terms of the legislation.

If the information you require is not available on our website via our Publication Scheme, please send us your Freedom of Information request via email or post (please see contacts box for details).

Access to Information - our publications

A Publication Scheme is a legal requirement under Section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act.

A publication scheme gives people access to information an organisation routinely publishes. This includes plans, management arrangements, performance, inspection reports, policies and procedures and the minutes of key meetings. We aim to make as much information as possible available directly via our website, however as we continue to build our publication scheme, some content will be supplied on request.
