As a public organisation, we publish various types of information and we aim to be open transparent about our performance.
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we have a duty to specify where the information can be found and whether if it can be accessed freely or if there is a fee.
Our publication scheme is a useful place to start if you’re looking for information about our Trust, before making a Freedom of Information request.
Currently, most of our data is published in PDF format. However we are working toward using more accessible standards, for both cross-platform compatibility and usability.
The information we publish falls into one of the following seven categories.

NHS provider license declaration
While NHS trusts are exempt from the requirement to apply for and hold a provider licence, directions from the Secretary of State require NHS Improvement (NHSI) to ensure that NHS trusts comply with conditions equivalent to the licence as it deems appropriate. This includes giving directions to an NHS trust where necessary to ensure compliance.
NHSI required Boards to sign self-certifications against Condition G6 by 31 May 2017 and publish by 30 June 2017.
