Freedom of Information Request
Freedom of Information Act 2000
The Freedom of Information Act recognises that members of the public have the right to know how public services such as the NHS are organised and run, how much they cost and how to make complaints.
You have the right to know which services are being provided, the targets that are set, the standards of services that are expected and the results achieved.
From January 1st 2005 the Act obliges the Trust to respond to requests about the information which it holds and recorded in any form, and it will create a right of access to that information.
The rights to request and access this information are subject to some exemptions which the Trust has to take into consideration before deciding what information can be disclosed.
