Scotland publication scheme

Freedom of Information 



Vision Express provide ophthalmic services to the NHS as described in the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FoI(S)A). Under the FoI(S)A, we are required to adopt a publication scheme setting out the information we routinely make available in relation to the NHS services we provide.

The publication scheme is a statutory obligation under Section 23 of the FoI(S)A and as such, we have adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner's Model Publication Scheme (MPS). The MPS can be found on the Scottish Information Commissioner's website:

By adopting the MPS, we must consider the six MPS Principles and the nine classes of information outlined by the Scottish Information Commissioner. We must also have regard to the public interest in allowing public access to information we hold in relation to the NHS services we provide. We are also required to disclose the fees (if any) to access the information and details of how to access the information that we publish.

This MPS includes information required by the classes of information and the six principles, these being found under the heading of ‘Guide to Information’ as is required by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
