Freedom of information

What is the Freedom of Information Act 2000?

The Freedom of Information Act allows certain information held by public authorities to be accessible to the public and also gives the public the right to ask for information.

As a trust we comply with the Freedom of Information Act by following a strict publication scheme. We also respond to requests for information from members of the public. 

How to make a request 

You can submit a request by emailing or send a letter to:

FOI officer
Trust headquarters
The Princess Alexandra Hospital

We are unable to provide any patient information or records via the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Any requests for your own, or another individual's records, should be submitted to our health records team by emailing

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
