Freedom of Information extension of coverage consultation
The Scottish Government is consulting on whether certain organisations – or classes of organisation – delivering health and social care functions, but currently not subject to the Freedom of Information Act Scotland, should be brought within scope of the Freedom of Information legislation. This could, of course, impact on the SDSS members.
The full consultation can be accessed here, please note the deadline for this consultation is December 3rd 2019,
SDSS would be keen to hear your views, and particularly whether you think you might be impacted by these proposed changes and any concerns you have at this stage.
