Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act came in to force on 1st January 2005. The aim of this act is to encourage greater openness in the information held by public authorities. The NHS will disclose information under this act unless it falls under one of the exemptions.


  • Personal information about patients and staff
  • Commercially sensitive information
  • Information relating to criminal proceedings
  • A full list of these exemptions can be found at https://ico.org.uk/
