What do I do if I receive a Freedom of Information request?

Potentially any written request (including email or social media) received from outwith NES could be an FOI request.

If you think you may have received one contact Frank Rankin or Nick Cowan, immediately foidp@nes.scot.nhs.uk

NES directorates are individually responsible for collating the information required to respond to a request, but all responses should be issued by the Information Governance team to ensure consistency and that we are fully complying with the Act.

For background information see the website of the Scottish Information Commissioner.

For advice, contact the IG team at foidp@nes.scot.nhs.uk
