We welcome the aims of the Freedom of Information Act which is intended to promote a culture of openness and accountability amongst public sector bodies, and therefore to facilitate better public understanding of how public authorities carry out their duties, why they make the decisions they do, and how they spend public money.

We already make a lot of information available and aim to provide comprehensive information on this. If you still can’t find what you are looking for, you can make a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

NHS Dorset have adopted the Information Commissioner’s model publication scheme.

How to make a request for information

You can request information in writing, stating your name, an address for correspondence (this can be an email or postal address), and a description of the information required. You can email us at: FOI.Requests@nhsdorset.nhs.uk.

Alternatively, you can write to us at:

Freedom of Information Team,
NHS Dorset,

Freedom of information disclosures

NHS Dorset receives Freedom of Information (FOI) requests for a wide range of information. Available from our disclosure log are those requests that NHS Dorset believe may be of wider public interest or when the information is frequently requested. Personal details such as names and addresses are redacted to protect requestor’s privacy.

Please note: Information contained in any of the documents available was correct at the time of the response but may now be out of date and should not be relied upon.
