NHS: Freedom of Information

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on private firms seeking to use the Freedom of Information legislation to obtain details of management decisions or discussions by primary care trusts and other NHS bodies. (140772)

Information about Freedom of Information requests made to the national health service is not collected centrally. Primary care trusts and other NHS organisations are public authorities and are consequently obliged to comply fully with the law, including the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
