Freedom of Information

Home » Contact Us » Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides a right of access to a wide range of information held by public authorities, including the NHS.

As an Integrated Care Board (ICB) we have a duty to be transparent and open, in line with information legislation we maintain our website in accordance with the Information Commissioner Office publication scheme guidance.

Before you make a request

Check whether the information you seek is already available. NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB proactively publishes information on this website and maintains a Disclosure Log.

If you request information from NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB that is already published, we will refer you to the published source.

If you cannot find the information you want, you are entitled to make a request for information. Depending on the type of information you are requesting different processes and legislation applies.

Who can request information?

Anybody can make a FOI request to NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB.

What can I request?

You can seek any recorded information that you think Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB may hold.

If the information is environmental, we will respond according to the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR)  2004. You do not have to know whether the information you want is covered by the EIR or the FOI Act. When you make a request, we will decide which law applies.

If the information relates to personal data, a Subject Access Request should be made under the Data Protection Act  (DPA) 2018, and not under the FOI Act, further information can be found here.
