Freedom of Information request

As an Integrated Care Board, we are committed to being open and transparent in line with relevant legislation. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides a right of access to a wide range of information held by public authorities, such as the NHS.

Before you make a request it may be helpful for you to consider the following:

We maintain a Freedom of Information Disclosure log which contains details of responses we have provided to the public. See next section.

If your request is about your own information you need to make a subject access request under the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA).

To make a Subject Access Request please refer to the Subject Access Request section.

Anyone can make a Freedom of Information Request.

A Freedom of Information Request can be made for information held by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board.

We will require the following information from you:

  • Your full name
  • Your correspondence address (postal or email)
  • The specific information you are requesting.

 

Please make your request via the Online Contact Form.

Your request will be acknowledged, and we will source the information you have requested from the relevant teams.

We will:

  • Contact you as soon as possible to request clarification (if required) that will help us to answer your request;
  • Provide a response to your FOI request within 20 working days after receiving the request, unless an extension has been agreed;
  • Inform you if we don’t hold the information and, if we can, advise you who does;
  • Inform you that your request will exceed the cost limit specified in the ICO Fees Regulations and invite to submit a further, narrower or refined request;
  • Advise that we hold the information but are not releasing it, citing the relevant exemption from the FoI Act 2000;
  • Advise that we are refusing your request on the basis that it repeated or vexatious
  • Tell you that we need more time to coordinate a response or to consider the public interest test in relation to your request. We will then specify a new deadline date – this should not be later than 40 days after receipt of your request.

If you are unhappy with the Freedom of Information response provided, please contact the LLR ICB Corporate Governance Team via the online contact form for further clarification in relation to the response you have received.

If you remain dissatisfied, you can apply to  the Information Commissioner’s Office, who will consider whether the organisation has compiled with its obligations under the Act and can require the organisation to remedy any problems.

Subject Access Request (SAR)

The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA2018) and the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UKGDPR) provides living individuals the right to request access to their personal records that are held by an organisation.  This is commonly referred to as a Data Subject Access Request or a Subject Access Request.

Please note as a commissioning organisation, LLR ICB do not hold medical records as these are held by the organisations providing healthcare services. Please contact the healthcare provider if your request relates specifically to your medical records.

Anyone can make a Subject Access Request for access to their own personal information. In addition, an individual may nominate a representative (such as a solicitor or relative) to submit a Subject Access Request on their behalf. In such an instance, there must be a valid consent form signed by the individual who is authorising the release of the information unless the individual does not have capacity.  In those circumstances the relevant legally appointed representative may authorise the access.

You may only make a Subject Access Request for access to your own personal information held by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board.

We would recommend that a request is made in writing wherever possible and for this we would require:

  • Your full name
  • Correspondence address (postal or email) and contact details
  • A comprehensive list of what personal data you would like access to
  • Any details, relevant dates, or search criteria that will help the organisation identify the information
  • Details of how you would like to receive the information (e.g., by email or print out by post).

 

Please make your request via the online contact form.

If you are unhappy with the response provided to your Subject Access Request, please contact the LLR ICB Corporate Governance Team via the online contact form.

If you remain dissatisfied, you can apply to  the Information Commissioner’s Office, who will consider whether the organisation has compiled with its obligations under the Act and can require the organisation to remedy any problems.

Complaints

We would encourage you to discuss any concerns or complaints you have regarding your NHS treatment and care with your healthcare provider (the organisation where you received the NHS service, for example the hospital trust, your GP surgery, dental surgery, optician or pharmacy). This would be the quickest way to resolve your concern or complaint.

If this is not possible then you can raise a complaint with Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board (as the organisation that paid for the NHS service or care you received).

Your complaint should be made as soon as possible and at the most within a year of the event or within a year of you realising that you have something you want to complain about.  You can make a complaint on your own or on behalf of someone else with their permission.

A complaint can be raised with either the healthcare provider or the LLR ICB but not with both.

The LLR ICB Complaints policy can be found here.

To respond to your complaint, we would require:

  • Your full name
  • Correspondence address (postal or email)
  • A summary of what has happened
      • noting the healthcare provider / service the complaint is being raised against
      • the timeframe / dates you are referring to in your complaint
      • the outcome you are looking for from your complaint

Following receipt of your complaint a member of the LLR ICB Corporate Governance Team will contact you regarding the next step in the process.

Please make your complaint via the online contact form.

POhWER NHS Complaints Service

POhWER NHS Complaints Service can support you to make a complaint and offer a free and confidential service that is independent of the NHS.
