Under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we have a duty to specify:

  • What information we publish
  • How the information is made available
  • Whether it is available free if there is a charge

The Chesterfield Royal Hospital publication scheme explains what information the trust makes available to the public. 

Wherever possible, we make information easy for you to access. 

Please note: Our standard practice is to provide information in PDF format - however, alternative formats will be available upon request for accessibility purposes.

How to make a request: 

  • Please check our publication scheme or NHS England first to ensure the information is not already available. 
  • If the information is not already published, then you will need to request this from us.  All Freedom of Information requests must be made in writing.  

If you are unable to find the information you require in the publication scheme, please email your request to chesterfield@infreemation.co.uk.

We aim to:

  • Make as much information as we can available online  
  • Respond within 20 working days  
  • Use exemptions in the Act only as a last resort

Under the Data Protection Act 2018, you have the right to access information held about you within health records which is held by Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and this is known as a Subject Access Request.

A health record contains details about your mental and physical health that have been recorded by a healthcare professional as part of your care and treatment.
