The Freedom of Information Act (2000) legislation gives the right of access to all types of information held by the NHS and its partners. It allows anyone, anywhere in the world, to make a written request for information to any UK public body or agency, including the NHS, subject to certain conditions and exemptions, and enables them to expect a reply within 20 working days.
NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) aims to make available, via this website, information about every aspect of our business – how we are organised, what we do, who we work with, how we work and how we are funded.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 recognises that anyone has the right to know how public services such as the NHS are organised and run, how much they cost and how you can contact relevant departments, such as Enquiries or Complaints.
You have the right to know which services are being provided, the targets that are being set, the standards of services that are expected and the results achieved.
The CCG has an individual obligation under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to:
1. Provide a Publication Scheme – this is a guide to the information we routinely publish and how it can be accessed. Our scheme is published here; the categories of information for publication are:
2. Respond to individual requests for information – to inform the applicant whether we hold the information requested, and if we do, to provide it to them (subject to certain exemptions and conditions).
