Make a freedom of information request

The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to request and access information held by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB).

Freedom of information (FOI) requests must:

  • be in writing
  • include a name and address for correspondence (an email address is acceptable)
  • describe the information you are requesting with enough detail to allow us to correctly identify and find it

You can write to:

Freedom of Information
Room 33E, Third Floor
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham
Mindelsohn Way
B15 2TH

We aim to respond to your FOI request within 20 working days. We will inform you if any delays appear likely or we require further clarification regarding your request.

We will disclose information wherever possible. However, in certain circumstances, it will be necessary to withhold some or all of the information requested under one of the exemptions outlined in the FOI Act. If information is not supplied to you the Trust will specify which exemption has been claimed and why.

All FOI requests will be carefully considered on their own merits and with close regard to the public interest.
