Freedom of Information
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.
Health & Social Care is experiencing unprecedented pressures due to COVID 19. The Information Commissioner’s Office have issued guidance recognising that, as resources might be diverted away from usual compliance or information governance work, understandable delays may be experienced by those making information rights requests during the pandemic. The Trust understands the significance of your request and we will endeavour to meet the required deadlines in all situations. However, we would appreciate your forbearance during these exceptional circumstances. Should you wish to speak to a member of staff, please contact 028 2766 1293.
