Anyone has a right to request information from a public authority. We have two separate duties when responding to these requests:
- to tell (you or your representative) the applicant whether we hold any information falling within the scope of their request; and
- to provide that information
We normally have 20 working days to respond to a request.
For a request to be valid under the Freedom of Information Act it must be in writing, Please submit your request to the Practice Manager. Any letter or email to a public authority asking for information is a request for recorded information under the Act.
