This guide to information outlines the seven classes of information that we will routinely publish through the publication scheme.

The information outlined in our publication scheme will be provided mainly on the website. Where information cannot reasonably be made available on the website or where an individual does not wish to access via the website, alternative means will be considered.

Generally  information made available in the publication scheme will be free of charge via the website, although the Health Board may charge a fee where information is required in hard copy or onto a different type of media e.g. CD ROM. Please see our charges for information section for further details.
