We are committed to meeting the statutory requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and have adopted the Information Commissioner's Office’s model publication scheme. We produce information as it becomes available in line with the ICOs Definition Document for Health Bodies in England.
Our publication scheme
The scheme is divided into classes as defined by the Information Commissioner's Office. It is not an exhaustive list of all the types of information we publish – our policy is to proactively publish as much information as we can. The scheme does not include information we consider to be sensitive, such as certain types of commercial or personal information.
Publication scheme classes
The Information Commissioner's Office has identified seven classes of information which should be published by public bodies. These are:
- 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
Charges for information
Most of our information can be accessed from this website free of charge. In some cases charges may apply. If you do not have access to the internet, a printed copy of the web page(s) can be sent to you free of charge.
Requests for multiple copies and where the cost of photocopying, postage and packing exceed £50 may incur a charge. Any charges made will be to cover the costs. You will be told in advance of supplying the information if there will be a charge, and how much it will be.
The information we provide is copyrighted to NHS Vale of York CCG and provided free of charge for personal use or for other specific uses permitted in the Copyright Act. If you wish to use the information provide for any commercial purposes, including the sale of the information to a third party, then, under the Regulations on the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005, you must ask us for permission to do so in respect of each specific piece of such information. If we do grant permission, this may involve a licensing arrangement which may attract a fee. Should you wish to apply for permission for commercial re-use under the Regulations you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Information not already published
If you cannot find what you want through this scheme, or otherwise on our website, you may wish to make a request to us under the FOI Act or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR).
