Freedom of Information Act:
Right of Access to Information
Rights of Access to Information
The Freedom of Information Act recognises that as a member of the public, you have the right to know how public services such as the NHS are organised and run, how much they cost and how you can make complaints if you need to.
You have the right to know which services are being provided, the targets that are being set, the standards of services that are expected and the results achieved.
In accordance with this legislative Act, the Trust will respond to requests about the information which it holds and will provide 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 released.
