FOI Publication Scheme

In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, public sector organisations such as the Northern Trust have to routinely publish information whenever possible.

We make this information available here on our website. In order to help you find the information you require, it has been categorised into the categories in the dropdown menu below. This is called a Publication Scheme.

The categories or classes of information in the Publication Scheme were defined by the Information Commissioner who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The Information Commissioner’s Definition document for NHS organisations sets out in some detail the information which is expected in each category.

Accessing information which is not included in the Publication Scheme

The Northern Trust is committed to routinely publishing as much information as possible, however, if there is information you want which is not available on our website, you may ask the Trust for it in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations 2004.
