Publication Scheme

Publication Scheme  

This guide explains what information NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) makes (or expects to make) routinely available and how it can be accessed.

The CCG is only a small organisation and commenced with full statutory powers on the 1 April 2013. Consequently it only holds limited information at present but this will be increasing as we move through our first year of business. This guide will help signpost you to the information we proactively release as and when it becomes available.

In line with section 20 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 we have a legal duty to adopt and maintain a publication scheme for the publication of information relating to the organisation.  The purpose of the Act is to promote greater openness by public authorities.

Our publication scheme is a good starting point to find information, so if you are need information on a specific subject please take a look to see if it is already available. 

Classes of information

The Information Commissioner’s Office, a national body established to promote public access to official information and protect personal information, sets out the kinds of information that it expects all public bodies to provide as part of its normal business activities. It sets out seven ‘classes’ of information for public bodies to use to publish this information:

In this guide we set out the information that is available and how it may be accessed under reach of these headings. Before considering making a ‘freedom of information’ request you are encouraged to check whether the information you are seeking is already available on our website. If you request something that is already published we will refer you to where it can be found. Our freedom of information policy can be found here.

If, after reading these pages, you are not able to find the information you are looking for please contact us via our Freedom of Information enquiry, and we will do our best to provide you with the information you need. 

Please include your full name and an address for correspondence (an email address is sufficient); if you can be as specific as possible in your request this helps us to identify appropriate information to answer your enquiry.
