Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives members of the public the right to access certain non-personal information held by public bodies. Information is made available via Publication Schemes and by requests under General Right of Access.
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public authorities must make available a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to information that is made available routinely. Publication Schemes must show the data format and any applicable charges.
General right of access
Anyone can make a request to see information held by public authorities. Requests must be made in writing or by email and must include your name and a return address.
Some information may not be available to the public as there are several grounds for exemption under the Act. Most of these exemptions are subject to the application of a Public Interest Test which is applied by Information Governance. This is a test of whether the reasons for disclosing the information are outweighed by the exemption.
