Practices to operate new FoI publication scheme

Practices must adopt a new model publication scheme this year under the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act, according to the Information Commissioner.

It is to be adopted by all public authorities from 1 January 2009.

However, the timetable for monitoring the scheme has slipped and this will now not start until March 2009, according to the BMA.

A specific information leaflet for practices is being prepared by the Information Commissioner but publication has also been delayed.
