The Information Commissioner who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the FOI Act has drawn up a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations. It has been adopted without modification and is valid until further notice. The Information Commissioner has also published a definition document for NHS organisations which sets out, in some detail, what his minimum expectations are as far as the University Health Board is concerned.
The University Health Board has developed a guide to our information which sets out the type of information the University Health Board produces and the associated decision making processes which are made publicly available. Most of the information that the University Health Board holds is routinely available and can be accessed through this website by using the search facility. This information is regularly updated.
Generally information available through the Publication Scheme will be free of charge, although the University Health Board may charge if the information is required in a hard copy or to be copied onto a different type of media.
