Freedom of Information Act
Since 1 January 2005 all requests for information received by a public body have had to be answered in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) or the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs). Both regimes were designed to promote openness and accountability amongst all organisations that receive public money.
Health Education England is fully committed to the principles of transparency and openness as well as the protection of personal information and we recognise the importance of both the FOI and the EIRs and the relevance of both for the way in which we manage and disseminate information. Under the FOI Act there is a requirement for us to provide you with a substantive response to your request promptly and in any event within 20 working days. We also aim to acknowledge receipt of your request within two working days.
We publish a large amount of information relating to education and training within the NHS, however if you want to request specific information, you can do so by making an FOI request below.
Before submitting a request for information, you should see if the information that you are looking for is already available online. If you request information from us that is already published, then we will simply refer you to the published source.
Unless stated otherwise, we will send you a reply via email. If you wish to receive a response via post, please read our fees and charges document, below, before making your request. If you want to ask us for information which we may hold about you personally then this will be dealt with under the Subject Access Provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
Please submit your query by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
