Freedom of Information

What is Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides public access to information held by public authorities.

It does this in two ways:

  • public authorities are obliged to publish certain information about their activities; and
  • members of the public are entitled to request information from public authorities.

Trust publication scheme

Under Section 19 of the FOI Act, all public authorities, including NHS trusts, are required to produce a publication scheme.

This document provides information routinely published by the trust. It is a description of the information about the trust made available to the public. The trust reviews the scheme at regular intervals and monitors how it is operating.

Documents available under the FOI act are split into separate classes, which are explained in the publication scheme:
