However there may be information about the HSCB and our business which is not currently available on our website. Details of how to access this information are shown below.

Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives the public a general right of access to written information held by public authorities, which includes all Health and Social Care Trusts, Boards, Councils and Agencies. It is designed to encourage a more open and accountable government.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we are committed to providing timely and accessible information to the public and responding to reasonable requests for information.

All FOI requests must be submitted in writing. If you want to make a request, please email foi.hscb@hscni.net or send a letter to the contact details below.

Data Protection

Being transparent and providing accessible information to individuals about how we may use personal data is a key requirement of the Data Protection Act (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The HSCB is committed to building trust and confidence in our ability to process your personal information and protect your privacy. The Privacy Notice detailed below provides you with information on the role of the HSCB, the information it processes and your rights as a data subject.

HSCB Privacy Notice

Data Protection legislation also provides individuals with a general right of access to their personal information, this right is often referred to as Subject Access. To find out more about how you can access information that the HSCB might hold about you please contact us.

Preferably requests for information should be in writing (by letter or email) and include a return address for the purpose of corresponding, however, if you require assistance to make a request please contact the Data Protection Officer at the following telephone number: +44 (0) 28 9536 2912.

To ensure that we meet your request as fully as possible, it is helpful that the request clearly sets out what information is being sought and describes the information in as much detail as possible. This will avoid us having to contact you seeking clarification, which might delay our response to a request.
