About us

Freedom of information

Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) 2000, the public has the right to see information held by public authorities, including NHS organisations.

How do I make a request for information?

To make a FOI request you can do so by either emailing the Trust at: foirequests@york.nhs.uk or contact us in writing addressed to:

Freedom of Information
2nd Floor Administration Block
Wigginton Road
York
YO31 8HE

We aim to reply to requests within 20 working days.

The Trust strives to be open, however the right of access is not absolute and some requests may be refused, or refused in part.  Decisions will be made subject to the law, taking into account the public interest, and applicants have the right of appeal.


Trust publication scheme

The FOI Act requires every public authority to publish a Publication Scheme that tells people what information is routinely available to them, and how to get it.  The Trust has adopted the Information Commissioner's Model Scheme for NHS Bodies in England.  Information is provided under the following seven headings:

Who we are and what we do

What we spend and how we spend it

What our priorities are and how we are doing

How we make decisions

Our policies and procedures

Lists and registers

The services we offer
