What is the Freedom of Information?

The Freedom of Information Act was passed on 30 November 2000 and the full Act came into force on 1 January 2005. The Act requires us to make a certain amount of information available to the public and to release information in response to specific requests. The Act sets out exemptions from that right, covering any information that may not have to be released.

Publication Scheme 

In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has developed and approved a model scheme for all public sector organisations which NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group have agreed to adopt.

The model publication scheme specifies seven classes of information.

The majority of the information held by NHS Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group will fall into these classes.

Fees and Charges 

In accordance with the Freedom of Information Act and the associated Fees Regulations there will be a charge for any request for information where the amount of time taken to locate the information exceeds 18 hours or there is a statutory basis for doing so.

In this case we will contact you to facilitate your request.
We may also charge for disbursements related to the provision of information and any reformatting requested by the applicant provided we ensure that applicants are aware of any charges which may be made.
No charges will be made for any information accessed via our website.
