Make a request under Freedom of Information Act

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust remains committed to meeting its obligations under Freedom of Information and Data Protection Laws and Regulations

However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time.  Understandably, our resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those in need of our services.

We strive to be transparent and to work with an open culture.  But at this time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff takes precedent, it is likely that responses to some requests for information will be delayed.  We apologise for this position in advance, and will endeavour to provide you with as much information as we can, as soon as we are able.

The Information Commissioners Office has recognised the current situation in the NHS.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA 2000) gives members of the public the right to ask for information that is held by public sector organisations such as Local Councils and the NHS. 

You can make a request by writing to us, by sending an email to    

Please read our frequently asked questions, if you'd like to find out more about making a request.

If you'd like any guidance, please contact the Freedom of Information Officer on 023 8087 4662 

Once your request has been received by the Freedom of Information Officer you will be contacted with an estimated completion date. We have 20 working days to respond on receipt of the request.
