CHS publication scheme
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 all public authorities are required to have and operate a publication scheme approved by the Information Commissioner. The purpose of the Act is to promote greater openness by public authorities.
Croydon Health Services NHS Trust (CHS) has adopted the Information Commissioner's Office. You can download the ICO Model Publication Scheme here.
What do we publish
CHS has a legal duty to adopt and maintain a publication scheme to share Trust information. All of the information that we routinely publish is listed below. We will review our publication scheme at regular intervals and monitor how it is operating.
The publication scheme contains seven classes of information, which are detailed below.
- Who we are and what we do
- What we spend and how we spend it
- What are our priorities and how are we doing
- How we make decisions
- Our policies and procedures
- Lists and registers
- The services we offer
Information released in the FOI Publication Scheme can be re-used free of charge under an open government licence. Further information can be found here: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/
