Freedom of Information
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) recognises the unprecedented challenges all are facing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, with their advice in relation to Freedom of information requests: "Whilst we can't extend statutory timescales, we will not be penalising public authorities for prioritising other areas or adapting their usual approach during this extraordinary period". Therefore patients and the public are advised that, whilst the channel is to be used as normal and the CCG shall endeavour to respond within the normal timescales, there may be occasions where we may be unable to do so. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 gives any person the right to request information which is held by a public authority. We are committed to being open and transparent with its health community and the wider public.
We have a duty to respond to FOI requests in 20 working days, should be made in writing either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG)
