Freedom of information publication scheme

  • Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, every public authority has a duty to specify what information they publish, how the information is made and whether it is free or if there is a charge.

Our publication scheme explains what information we provide to the public. Wherever possible, we will make it easy for you access. The information is provided in a set format, classed into the seven categories below.

Two of the core values of the NHS are accountability and transparency. In line with the NHS Standard Contract General Condition 27: Conflicts of Interest and Transparency on Gifts and Hospitality, the Trust holds a Declaration of Interests Register and a Gifts and Hospitality Register enabling all staff to be as open as possible and declare any actual or potential conflict of interest, and any accepted gift and/or hospitality, including sponsorship.
