Freedom of information
You have a right to request all types of information from public sector organisations, such as the NHS.
We are committed to the continued support of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and will continue to conduct an open and honest service for service users, carers, staff and the public.
How to request a publication
We have adopted the Information Commissioner’s model publication scheme.
Alongside the publication scheme sits the Trust's Scheme of Delegation. This is based on the Information Commissioner’s definition document and provides further detailed information on the documents available in each category of the Publication Scheme. Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are trying to ensure that as many documents as possible are available for download on this website. Where documents are currently not available on the website or you would like a hard copy please write to the corporate & legal services department.
What happens next?
Once we have received your request we will acknowledge receipt.
- Under normal circumstances we will then try to find and send you the information you require within 20 working days.
- It may be that we are unsure from your request what information you are looking for. If this happens we will write to you and ask for more details.
- Most requests will be processed free of charge although unusual, large or complex requests may mean we are unable to comply or we may decide to charge the full amount it would cost to provide the information you request. If this happens and you do not wish to pay for the request we may decide not to continue with the request.
- Sometimes, some or all of the information requested cannot be provided. We will explain the reasons why not when this happens.
Transparency - Publication of spend over £25,000
As part of the government's commitment to greater transparency, there is a requirement to publish online, central government non pay expenditure over £25,000. In summary, NHS bodies are required to publish all expenditure over £25,000 from April 2010.
