Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust
FOI Banner

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives people the right to request information held by public organisations. This allows us to be more open and transparent about our organisation, who we are, what we do, who we work with and where we spend money. 

This Act does not allow people a right of access to their own personal data such as their health or personnel records. If a member of the public wishes to see information that the Trust hold about them then a Subject Access Request should be made.

How to Make a request under the Freedom of Information Act 

1. Please check our Publication Scheme section to see if it contains the information you require.

2. Check our FOI disclosure log as your information may have been provided as part of a previous request.

3. If you still haven’t found what you are looking for then please make a request to us in writing either by email to WHCNHS.FOIrequest@nhs.net or by post addressed to Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, Freedom of Information Officer, Company Secretary's office, 2 Kings Court, Charles Hastings Way, Worcester, WR5 1JR. The Trust cannot accept a verbal request for information.

4. Ensure that you include a contact name and address in your request. This can be a physical or email address as long as we know where to forward your response.

5. Try to include as much detail as possible, in your request, about the information you require. This helps us when processing your request.

6. Please be aware that the Act operates an appropriate cost limit. Therefore if the time and resource taken to provide your information exceeds that limit the Trust can apply a charge to your request or issue a written refusal notice.

For further details on the Freedom of Information Act 2000, exemptions, the appropriate cost limit and more please visit the Information Commissioner’s website: www.ico.gov.uk
