The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”) requires every public authority (as defined under the Act) to operate a Publication Scheme.
The purpose of Community Health Partnership’s Publication Scheme is to identify classes of information we make available or intend to make available to the public and to provide details as to how the information can be obtained.
Next to each class of information the Publication Scheme will indicate the manner in which the information is or will be made available to you.
