Publication scheme

You may be able to find the information you are looking for here, without needing to make a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme that:

  • specifies the classes of information we have committed to publish
  • says how we will make that information available
  • says whether the information is available free of charge, or only on payment.

Most of the information covered by our publication scheme will be made available on the website and is set out below. We routinely publish under the scheme the information and categories of information listed described below. If you need this information in an alternative format, we will do all we reasonably can to help. Our publication scheme follows the Information Commissioner’s model publication scheme for public authorities.

This is a log of all information released by the CCG under Freedom of Information requests.

Financial information about North Central London CCG will be made available here, as it is produced. Information about the general financial duties of North Central London CCG and its financial strategy can be found in:

Information about staff pay and grading is published in our annual report. Job descriptions and their salary bands can be provided on request.

Our priorities and how we are doing are set out in Islington CCG’s:

Our Governing Body papers record how all our important decisions are made. Our Patient and Public Engagement Groups heavily inform all of our work and we seek to learn from and act upon your comments and complaints.

These documents show how we manage conflicts of interest and are transparent about any gifts, or things that are paid for by others.

  • Primary Care rebate schemes (the CCG does not participate in any such schemes).
  • Data predating the CCG’s creation on 1 April 2020 (information will be available for individual North Central London CCGs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington from their creation in April 2013. Before that, Primary Care Trusts were responsible for commissioning services for North Central London residents).
  • Patients’ medical records (we don’t hold patient records, they are held by your GP or hospital).

As part of the government’s commitment to greater transparency, HM Treasury requires all NHS organisations to publish details of expenditure over £25,000 from April 2014 to June 2014, and over £30,000 from July 2015. North Central London CCG will publish this data on a regular basis. Please visit www.data.gov.uk for further information.
