Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 enables people to gain access to information held by public authorities in two ways: by public authorities making available some information as a matter of routine through a publication scheme; and general right of access, under which any person has the right to make a request for information held by a public authority.

What is the publication scheme?

The publication scheme is a complete guide to the information routinely published by Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, click here to view.

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has a duty to confirm or deny that we hold the requested information, and provide the information within 20 days unless it is subject to an exemption.  If you would like to make a request under FOI, please contact the FOI team using the contact details below.
