As an open and transparent organisation, the University Health Board is committed to routinely publishing as much information as possible. However, if you want information which is not on the University Health Board ’s website or otherwise available through our Publication Scheme, you may ask the University Health Board for it in accordance with further provisions of the FOI Act and of the Environmental Information Regulations 2005.
