Under Section 19 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital (L&D) has a legal duty to adopt and maintain a publication scheme for the publication of the L&D information. The purpose of the Act is to promote greater openness by public authorities (of which the L&D is one).
The L&D will also respond to requests about the information that it holds recorded in any form and it will create a right of access to that information. These rights are subject to some exemptions.
The Freedom of Information Act does not change the right of patients to protection of their confidentiality in accordance with Article 8 of the human rights convention, the data protection act and common law. Maintaining the legal right to patient confidentiality continues to be an important commitment on our part.
