FOI - Publication Scheme

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust's publication scheme has been designed to comply with the Information Commissioner's Office model publication scheme guidance.

Information is published in accordance with the model publication scheme on the Trust's website and this can be accessed using the links on this page. Hard copies of the information can be provided on request. Postage costs will be charged in addition to a fee of £0.02 per page to cover printing costs.

The information has been divided into seven classes of information as detailed below. Given the amount of information held by the Trust, it will not be possible to publish it all online. In many cases, information normally found in a publication scheme is available elsewhere on the Trust's website.

If the information you require is not available here or on the Trust's website, then please submit a Freedom of Information request.
