FOI Model Publication Scheme

What is a Publication Scheme

Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the Act. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The scheme commits FOI bodies to make information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.

The Act requires that in preparing, reviewing or revising a publication scheme, an FOI body shall have regard to the public interest in:

(a)          allowing public access to information held by the FOI body;

(b)          the publication of reasons for decisions made by the FOI body; and

(c)           publishing information of relevance or interest to the general public in relation to its activities and functions generally. 

In response to Section 8 of the FOI Act, Beaumont Hospital’s Publication Scheme is presently a work in progress, further document will be placed on the website when they become available,  and links will be provided where information is already accessible in a different area of the website.

To assist  members of the Public with procuring any information/record,  please find below  a link to 6 separate tables a) – f), and  each further link in the appropriate table  will lead to a further section/page comprising of the relevant information sought.
