In order to comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 public sector organisations such as ours have to routinely publish information whenever possible.
The Information Commissioner, who is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, has drawn up what is called a Model Publication Scheme for all public sector organisations, which we have formally adopted and are committed to. The Commissioner has also published a Definition Document for NHS Organisations, which sets out in some detail what his minimum expectations are as far as we are concerned.
Most of the information we make routinely available can be accessed through our website by using the search facility. Such information is continually updated. If you cannot find information through the search engine and we have indicated in the definition document that the information is routinely available then this may be because the information cannot be loaded onto our website. In such circumstances please contact our Freedom of Information (FOI) Coordinator by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the information to be provided to you.
For details of how we fit into the NHS see the NHS Structure explained on the NHS England website.

NHS Nottingham City CCG has developed a four year strategy named Our Strategic Priorities 2017-2020.
The strategy sets out how we intend to achieve our aims over the coming years. Our ambition is to:
- Increase the number of years that people in Nottingham live in good health
- Reduce the health inequalities experienced between different areas in the city
- Empower people in Nottingham to improve their own health.
How have we involved local people on the development of our strategy?
Between May and August 2016 we spoke to people in Nottingham City about how we could shape local services to achieve our aims. We attended events, ran surveys and held a number of focus groups with different communities to understand what different people need from the services we commission.
