The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act gives members of the public a general right to request access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, promoting a culture of openness and accountability across the public sector.

As a requestor you are entitled to be told whether or not the Trust holds information and, if we do, to have it communicated to you, normally within 20 working days, in the format requested.

The Trust do not have to confirm or deny the existence of the information or provide it if 

  • an exemption applies
  • the request is vexatious or similar to a previous request
  • or if the cost of compliance exceeds an appropriate limit (this equates to 18 hours spent on locating and extracting the information)
