Freedom of Information Act

INTRODUCTION

The Freedom of Information Act, gives the general public right of access to all types of recorded information held by the practice.  The intention of the Act is to encourage openness and transparency in the NHS and the whole public sector.  Langham Place Surgery aims to fully support this.

THE PUBLICATION SCHEME

The Practice has developed a Publication Scheme.  It is a guide to information routinely published and gives indication of information intended to be published.  The Publication Scheme describes the form in which the information is published and any fees that will be charged.

The Publication Scheme can be accessed via the Practice Manager and requests must be in writing.

The Practice is not obliged to comply with vexation requests, or repeated, or substantially similar requests from the same person other than at reasonable intervals.
