The Freedom of Information Act 2000 and Environmental Information Regulations 2004 give individuals the right to access information held by the Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Please ensure that before you make a request you check that the information you require is not already available via this website or that a previous request has not asked for the same information (please see our Disclosure Log); as information accessible by other means is generally exempt.
Top Tips for Making a Request
Please define any key terms, we may require clarification if your request does not clearly explain the information you require,
Please be specific, we are unable to assume what requests may be asking for. Perhaps consider contacting us informally for assistance in framing your request,
Please don’t request information just in case. Small, well outlined requests help us to use our time more effectively. Broad requests that are not to the point can use a lot of staff time and Trust resources. If you have further questions once you receive the information, you can always ask us to further explain any responses.
Please be aware that any requests submitted to the Trust may be made available on our website as part of our disclosure log; please be assured that all personal information about the applicant will be removed prior to publication. The Trust will make available the majority of its responses to requests via the disclosure log on a monthly basis. Subject to the volume of request received by the Trust, responses will be available on our website for approximately 2 years.
If you would like information which is not on our website or otherwise available through our Publication Scheme please contact us, and where appropriate the Trust will treat your request it in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.
