Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act ensures that any person requesting information from a public body will receive that information, subject to certain exemptions.

The Act encourages public authorities to be more open and accountable, and to organise their information in an efficient and accessible way.

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 also required the NHS in Scotland to adopt and maintain a Publication Scheme listing the types of information made available as a matter of course to the public.
