FOI Publication Scheme

This Publication Scheme includes Freedom of Information requests made to us.

We shall review the Scheme at regular intervals and monitor how it is operating.

Under Section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 , we have a duty to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme. The purpose of the Act is to promote greater openness by public authorities. The Freedom of Information Act does not change the right of patients to protection of their confidentiality. Maintaining the legal right to patient confidentiality continues to be an important commitment on our part.
