The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act gives you the right to request access to recorded information held by public authorities, such as NHS Greater Manchester and Greater Manchester Integrated Care Partnership.

This is to promote greater openness, to help inform people of how public authorities make their decisions, and spend public money.

How do I make a request?
All requests need to be sent in writing, clearly stating your name, address and what information you’d like. You can also ask for information in a particular format, such as: paper or electronic copies, audio format or large print.

Requests for information should be sent to:

3 Piccadilly Place, Manchester, M1 3BN

If you can’t make your request in writing, please discuss this with us.

How long will a request take?
Under the FOI Act there is a requirement for us to provide you with a response to your request promptly and in any event within 20 working days.

Can I request any information?
You can request any recorded information that you think NHS Greater Manchester may hold.

If the information is environmental, we will respond in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004.

You do not have to know whether the information you want is covered by the EIR or the FOI Act. When you make a request, we will decide which law applies.

What can I do if I am unhappy with the reply I receive or the way my request was handled?
If you feel your request for information hasn’t been dealt with properly, please write to us to ask for an internal review.

If, after an internal review, you’re still not satisfied, you can then complain to the Information Commissioner (ICO) at the Information Commissioner’s Office:

Website: FOI and EIR complaints | ICO

Office of the Information Commissioner Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF

Telephone: 0303 123 1113 or 01625 545 745

If after following the NHS complaints process, you remain unhappy, you can contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.
