Freedom Of Information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives the public a right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, including General Practice surgeries.

The Act recognises that as a member of the public, you have the right to know how public services 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 standard of services that are expected and the results achieved.

We are required to make certain types of information available in a Publication Scheme.

You may also make an official request for information which is not routinely made available as part of the publication scheme.

The Practice will publish, where reasonably possible, the contents of all requests made under the FOIA and the Practice’s response. These will be available in the Disclosure Log section of the website and in the FOI Publication Scheme folder at the Practice.
