Please note

​Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

However, the NHS is facing unprecedented challenges relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic at the current time. Understandably, our resources have been diverted to support our front-line colleagues who are working tremendously hard to provide care for our patients, and to those in need of our services.

We strive to be transparent, fair and to work with an open culture. At this time, whilst care of our patients and the safety of our staff takes precedent, it is likely that responses to some requests will be delayed. We apologise for this position in advance, we will endeavour to provide you with a response to your request, as soon as we are able.

The Information Commissioners Office has recognised the current situation in the NHS; please visit the ICO website here to see their advice.
