Disclosure Log Introduction

The Northern Health and Social Care Trust’s Disclosure Log lists the responses to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 which the Trust feels are of wider public interest.

For each disclosure listed, there is a brief description of what was requested, and a link to our response. In certain circumstances there may be too much information to be provided within the answer file. If this is the case, there will be an alternative means of accessing this information detailed on the disclosure log document.

If a request was processed as 'Information not Held' or 'Passed to 3rd Party' this will also be shown in the outcome.

Not all information is published on the Disclosure Log, for example requests which relate to personal data or third parties will not be included.

You can read the Trust’s disclosure log criteria below to find out how we determine whether a response to a request should be published through or included in the Disclosure Log.


Disclosure Log Criteria

The Trust’s Disclosure Log lists responses to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.  In addition to our disclosure log, you can find more information that we make routinely available in our Publication Scheme.

We may add a response to our disclosure log if it meets the following criteria:

  • We can demonstrate how decisions have been made within our organisation, eg a procedures manual.
  • There is a substantial public, rather than private, interest.
  • The disclosure passes the public interest test.
  • Where we have spent public money or disclosed information around resources.

For personal data reasons, we cannot publish any requests from a complainant for correspondence on their complaint file.
