Publications Scheme

Manchester Health and Care Commissioning is committed to meeting the statutory requirements of the Freedom Of Information Act and will be adopting the Information Commissioners Office’s (ICO) Model Publication Scheme.

This Publication Scheme has been designed to give you a complete guide to the information routinely published by the organisation. It is not an exhaustive list of all the types of information that we publish – our policy is to publish proactively as much information as we can where the information would have a wider public interest. The scheme does not include information that we consider to be sensitive, such as certain types of commercial or personal information. For further information on the model publication scheme, please see the Information Commissioner’s Office Guidance.

As we are a new organisation, many documents have not yet been produced for MHCC, but may exist for Manchester CCG (or North, Central and South Manchester CCGs) and Manchester City Council, which constitute MHCC. We will produce information as it becomes available in line with the ICO’s Definition Document for Health Bodies in England.
