Folder Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“the Act”) in an Act of UK law which provides everyone with a general right of access to all types of information held by public authorities such as NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (“CCG”).
There are no restrictions on who can request information from a public body; any persons of any age, nationality or location can make a request. The Act places an obligation on public authorities to disclose information. The Act also sets out a series of exemptions and procedural limitations on the public's right of access and on our obligations to you.
Further guidance on the Freedom of Information Act 2000 can be found on the Information Commissioner's Office website.
