Freedom of Information (FOI)
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives you the right to ask for access to information that the CCGs hold, either electronically or on paper.
This website is our ‘Publication Scheme’ under the terms of the Act and provides information about what we do and how we operate. Details of the CCGs’ budgets and spending is available in our Annual Reports.
If you can’t find the information you’re looking for, you can ask us directly by completing the form below, or by emailing or writing to us using the contact details provided.
The FOI Act doesn’t cover access to your personal information, for example your medical records. If you’d like to access these, please see the NHS website – how to access your health records.
