Freedom of Information (FoI)
InnoScot Health operates under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIR).
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives people the rights to access information on the services we provide, how such services are organised and delivered, and the reasons behind business decisions.

Both encourage us to be open and accountable and to organise information so that it is easily accessible to anyone who requests it. You can submit a request for environmental information through the same process as an FoI request. For all FoI and EIR enquiries please contact email@example.com.
