The Freedom of Information Act (2000) gives members of the public the right to request information from public authorities. The aim of the Act is to promote greater openness and transparency.
Members of the public have the right to know how public services such as the NHS are organised and run, how much they cost, which services are being provided, what targets have been set, what standards are expected and any results which are being met.
To help us achieve this aim, we will publish some of the Freedom of Information requests we receive on this site.
Using the Act you can request information from the Trust, which includes information about the Royal (based in Prescot Street), Broadgreen (which is based in Thomas Drive, but does NOT include Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital or Merseycare Trust based on the Broadgreen site) and the Dental Hospital, and you are entitled to be told whether the Trust holds the information, and if so, to be supplied with the information, subject to exemptions or charges.
