The Freedom of Information Act 2000 enables members of the public
to access documents and other information about public authorities.
It is governed by the Information Commissioner’s Office, who also
monitor compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the
Environmental Information Regulations 2004.
The aim of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is to promote
greater transparency and openness of public authorities by
supporting members of the public in requesting information from and
about public authorities.
Under section 19 of the Freedom of Information 2000, public
authorities are required to publish and maintain a publication
scheme. The publication scheme is a list of the information
routinely published by the Trust and the purpose of the scheme is
to enable significant amounts of information to be made available
without the need for a specific request.
The publication scheme is split into seven
- Who we are and what we do
- What we spend and how we spend it
- What are our priorities and how are we doing
- How we make decisions
- Our policies and procedures
- Lists and registers
- The services we offer
