As a member of the public, you have the right to ask for access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, including the NHS.
This includes information held on computers, in emails and in printed or handwritten documents.
It also includes images, video and audio recordings.
And as an integrated care board, we are committed to being open and transparent and providing you with the information you need.
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 allows you to make a request for information – but before doing this, please check whether this is already available elsewhere on our website.
The Act sets out how we should handle requests, outlines the exemptions to providing requested information and explains the ICB has 20 working days in which to respond.
Day one is the next working day from when the request is received.
We will decide if the FOI Act applies to your request. If we think your enquiry falls outside our duty under the Act, we will let you know and tell you why this is.
You can access any recorded information you think we may hold.
If your request is about the environment, we will reply to your request under the Environmental information Regulations 2004 (EIR).
If your request is about personal data that the ICB holds about you, you need to make a subject access request under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
Please email any FOI or EIR requests.
