Freedom of Information Request (FOI)

Female Doctor Talking to Male Doctor

We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform our region’s hospitals by 2030. By creating a network of brand new and refurbished facilities, we’ll help local people live longer, healthier lives. 

By doing this, we’ll also make Lancashire and South Cumbria a world-leading centre of excellence for hospital care. We want the process to be fully open and transparent and we therefore pledge to ensure that we publish everything we can to ensure our public understand what is taking place and what is being discussed. 

How to make an FOI request

People are entitled to request information from public bodies and receive a response, usually within 20 working days, and there are a number of public bodies involved in the New Hospitals Programme.

The acute hospital Trusts involved and their FOI contact details are as follows. Please send to the most relevant Trust and they will liaise across the programme:

The programme also involves NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, who commission services from Lancashire and South Cumbria’s acute hospitals. Links to further information about making FOI requests and contact emails are as follows:

Published information requests

On the website we will also include:
  • Information about the process
  • FOI responses
  • Press releases
  • Press statements
  • Updates and articles.

Further information will be added to the site as the programme develops.
