The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act gives anyone a general right to request access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities such as NHS Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board (ICB).
! Please be aware – You may experience delays in our response to your request made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This is because in the current health emergency we are diverting resources to help with other challenges. You will be contacted to advise if your request is being affected. This reflects the Information Commissioner’s Office current position, which can be found on the ICO website. The aim of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is to create a climate of openness in public services and to inform people how public authorities make their operational decisions and how public money is used.
Before asking us for information, please check our website to make sure it isn’t already available.
If you ask for information that is already available, we will direct you to the most specific page on our website.
Think about the information you want and try to be as specific as possible about that information.
Please also see our Freedom of Information disclosure log.
We acknowledge requests in writing and, if we hold the information, we will communicate it within 20 working days.
The ICB is not responsible for Freedom of Information requests about GPs, dentists, pharmacists or opticians. If you wish to make a Freedom of Information request about these services please contact NHS England.
If the information you require about the ICB is not on our website, please make an FOI request:
