All you need to know about Freedom of Information

A nurse smiling at a patient Freedom of Information gives people the right to request information held by public organisations. This allows us to be more open and transparent about our organisation, who we are, what we do, who we work with and where we spend money.

Under section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we have a duty to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to information routinely published by a public organisation such as ours. Our Publication Scheme can be found at the bottom of this page.

The links below provide information published as part of our Publication Scheme.

If you are still unable to find the information that you require please complete and submit a freedom of Information request form.

You will find various information contained within the following sections.

  1. Who we are and what we do
  2. What we spend and how we spend it
  3. What are our priorities and how are we doing
  4. How we make decisions
  5. Policies and Procedures
  6. List and registers
  7. The services we offer
