FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FoIA) reflects the government's commitment to promote greater openness by public authorities. The purpose of the FOIA is to ensure that all public authorities, including the NHS are open and transparent, ensuring that more information about them is made readily available. To this end, the FoIA provides for public access to information held by public authorities. This is achieved in two ways:
- the requirement for every public authority to adopt and maintain a publication scheme;
- the right to request information that is not routinely published, which is known as the right of access.
The disclosure log provides details of Freedom of Information requests received and responded to at Cwm Taf Health Board.
