NHS Resolution is a designated Public Authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act (FOI) 2000. Under the terms of the Act, the organisation is expected to respond to any request for recorded information within 20 working days, subject to exemptions and limits on the amount of work to be undertaken.
The Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) require similar measures for all environmental information held by the organisation. The FoI also requires that NHS Resolution maintains a publication scheme which lists all recorded information which is routinely made available. NHS Resolution supports and is committed to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability embodied in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. This policy establishes a framework which underlines this commitment, providing a benchmark against which implementation can be audited.
