Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 makes it easier for you to get information about us. This law, which came into force on 1 January 2005, means that anyone, anywhere can ask for any information we hold.
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Belfast Trust is legally committed to providing timely and accessible information to the public and responding to reasonable requests for information. There are no time limits on how far back you can gain access to information, as long as we hold it on record.
Before submitting your request please check out our FOI Responses Disclosure Log, as the information may already be available. You can read responses to the Freedom of Information requests we have received in our disclosure log.
During this Covid-19 Pandemic, Health & Social Care is experiencing unprecedented pressures.
As a Trust, our staff are prioritising their duties as front line health and social care workers. Other duties within their role, such as investigating and responding to FOI requests, will be significantly delayed due to the need to prioritise professional caring duties and respond to the health crisis.
Personal information request
The FOI Act does not provide access to information of a personal nature. Requests for personal information will be dealt with under the Data Protection Act.
