Freedom of Information - Publication scheme

One of the core aims of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) is to encourage public authorities to be clear and proactive about the information they make available to the public.

Guide to information

As a public authority under the FOIA, as well as responding to requests Moorfields proactively publishes information to make it readily available to the public in our publication scheme. Our scheme follows the model publication scheme for healthcare bodies devised by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The purpose of our publication scheme is to make information available quickly and easily. Our scheme explains what information we publish, where it can be found or requested, and whether it is free or if there is a charge. The kinds of information health bodies are required to publish are grouped into seven different classes and subcategories as outlined below. For each subcategory, the link will either take you to where the information is held on our website, enable you to directly download the information, or direct you to how it can be obtained from either the relevant trust specialty or via the FOI Team.

Publications are free unless indicated to the contrary. If the information you require does not appear readily available below, we recommend using our website's search facility or index. Remember that you may also request any information not in the scheme under the Freedom of Information Act or the Environmental Information Regulations by contacting the FOI team at, or equally, if you require information in a different language, in Braille or in an audio format.

The Trust adheres to the Open Government Licence conditions for re-use of data or information from the scheme, so provided that information is suitably attributed to the Trust, you may re-use the following material unless otherwise stated (usual exceptions apply, please see licence). For permission to re-use information not covered by the licence, - for example information we already make available commercially or research information - or if you have any concerns about the way that your request has been handled or our implementation of the scheme, please contact the Trust’s Information Governance Lead via For further information on publication schemes please see the Information Commissioner’s website at
