What is Freedom of Information?
The Freedom of Information Act was passed on 30 November 2000 and the full act came into force on 1 January 2005. The Act requires us to make a certain amount of information available to the public and to release information in response to specific requests. The Act sets out exemptions from that right, covering any information that may not have to be released.
Requests can be received via e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by letter to

Access to Health Records
The subject access provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 give an individual the right to have a copy of any data held about them.
If you wish to have a copy of what information the practice holds about you, you will need to make an application.
Please note there may be a fee of between £10 and £50 sterling for this service alongside your completed application form.
Department of Health guidelines require us to comply with your request within 21 days. However the Data Protection Act gives us 40 days from when we receive your completed request and payment. The process of replying can take some time depending on what you have asked for.
All requests must be in writing and forwarded to Sukhi Ghattaora. the manager.
All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in the Sunrise Medical Practice in the last financial year was £98,807 before tax and national insurance. This is for one full time GP and one part time GP who worked in the practice for more than six months
Disclaimer: NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown above. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
