Freedom of Information Act 2000

The Freedom of Information Act 2000

The Freedom of Information Act 2000, which came about as a result of one of the major commitments in the Labour Party's 1997 manifesto, creates new rights of public access to information held by public authorities, as defined under the act.

The Act only applies to England, Wales and Northern Ireland. A seperate Freedom of Information Act applies to Scotland.

What does this mean to you as a patient?

As from January 2005, the Act will oblige each practice to respond to requests about the information they they hold and have recorded in any form and will create a right to that information.

Practices must:

  • Have a publication scheme in place 
  • Respond to individuals' requests for information from 1st January 2005
