How do I make a request under the Freedom of Information Act?
All requests for information must be made in writing in one of the following ways:
East Surrey Hospital
Please ensure that you provide your name and an address for correspondence when making your request, this can be an email address.
It will be helpful to us and speed up the processing of your request if you could be as specific as possible about the information you require. However, you don’t have to state why you want the information. For example, if you are asking for statistical data please state if you would prefer to receive the data in calendar or financial year format etc.
If we are not clear about what information you are requesting we will contact you to seek clarification. Please respond promptly as it will otherwise delay our response. If we do not hear from you within three months we will assume you no longer require the information and will close the request.
All requests for information will be handled centrally by the Trust’s FOI team.
Before you make a request
Our Guide to Information (Publications Scheme) has information routinely asked for by members of the public.
Before making a formal request to us, please check if we have already provided the information on this website.
