Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act gives anyone the right to request access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, including NHS North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
The purpose of the act – which we fully support – is to promote greater openness about how public authorities make their operational decisions, and how public money is used.
While there are access rights to all types of information, some exemptions exist.
To find out more, go to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website

What we can and can't provide
Sometimes we may not be able to provide all of the information you request. If this happens, we will state the reasons in our response.
For instance, under the Data Protection Act 1998 we are legally required to maintain patient confidentiality.
Some information may only be available to view in person, and if this is the case we’ll arrange an appointment within a reasonable timescale.
We provide information in its original language, or in any language that is legally required. We will translate information when we are legally required to do so and when online translation isn’t possible.
