The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) requires public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme, the purpose of which is to:
- Specify the classes of information we have committed to publish
- Say how we will make that information available
- Say whether the information is available free of charge or on payment
Most of the information covered by our publication scheme will be made available on this website. If you need information in an alternative format, we will do all we reasonably can to help.
Our publication scheme follows the Information Commissioner’s Office model publication scheme for Health Bodies in England
This publication scheme is divided into classes as defined by the Information Commissioner’s Office and has been designed to give you a complete guide to the information routinely published by NHS Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care Board.
The scheme is not an exhaustive list of all the types of information that we publish – our policy is to publish proactively as much information as we can where the information would have a wider public interest.
The scheme does not include information that we consider to be sensitive, such as certain types of commercial or personal information.
We shall review the Scheme at regular intervals and monitor how it is operating.
For further information on the model publication scheme prepared and approved by the Information Commissioner’s Office and the definition document for Health Bodies outlining the types of information we should provide, please see their website:
