House of Commons - Constitutional Affairs - NHS FOI project

House of Commons - Constitutional Affairs - NHS FOI project

This report on the NHS Freedom of Information project is part of a larger report from the House of Commons Constitutional Affairs project about public sector preparedness for the Freedom of Information Act which comes into force on Jan 1st 2005.

It includes a comment from the Information Commissioner that the lack of central control has contributed to a patchy approach, particularly to GP practice publication schemes.

It concludes "Nevertheless, there is little evidence that the DCA has been sufficiently active in providing the necessary leadership to ensure that many of the organisational and technical problems have been addressed in time in this sector."

I wonder of the department of health's own FOI publication scheme will cope with applications at the beginning of January?
