The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 promotes openness and accountability by ensuring that any person requesting information from a public body like the NHS, will receive that information, subject to certain exemptions.

Go to Making a Request for information on how to make a request to NHS Borders under the FOI(S)A.

The Act also requires us to adopt and maintain a Model Publication Scheme which lists the types of information we will regularly publish.

TheĀ Model Publication Scheme sets out the documents we will make available routinely. Most of these are available on this website and are listed under their classifications according to the Publication Scheme.

For information on the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act and your rights, click here for the Scottish Information Commissioner's website.

NHS Borders policy is to publish responses to requests for information under the FOI Act. You will find these on the Request and Responses Register.
