In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible.
The Information Commissioner, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, has drawn up a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations which Kettering General Hospital (KGH) has decided to adopt and formally commit to. The Commissioner has also published a ‘Definition Document for NHS Organisations which sets out in some detail their minimum expectations.
We have reviewed the information we routinely put into the public domain to ensure we are compliant with the Definition Document.
Most of the information we make routinely available can be accessed through our website by using the search facility. Such information is continually updated. If you cannot find information through the search engine and we have indicated in the Definition Document that the information is routinely available this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact the;
Freedom of Information Officer
Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
and ask for the information to be provided to you. A fees notice may be issued.
Freedom of Information Categories
The Freedom of Information categories are set by the Information Commissioner's Office. A complete description of the categories for this Trust is available on the Information Commissioner's Office website.
