Freedom of Information

What does the Freedom of Information Act mean to me?

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) gives the public the statutory right of access to all non-personal information held by public authorities, including the NHS.

The underlying principle of the Act is that information held by a public body should be freely available with few exemptions.

It is about us being open, honest and accountable.

This means that you can now ask for corporate information held by the Trust and request access to it.

If you want to access individual health records (your own or someone else’s), please see here.

We deal with all requests in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act Code of Practice.

More information on these guidelines on the Justice website.
