Publication scheme

The FOI Act requires every public authority to publish a ‘Publication Scheme’ that tells people what information is routinely available to them, and how to get it.  Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (hereby known as the Trust) has adopted the Information Commissioner’s new Model Scheme for NHS Bodies in England.

We hope to update this page with an FOI disclosure log in the near future.

Information is provided under the following seven class headings:

  • Who we are and what we do
  • What we spend and how we spend it
  • What are our priorities and how we are doing
  • How we make decisions
  • Lists and registers
  • The services we offer

Paper copies of the publication scheme are also available on request.
