Disclosure log

Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's disclosure log lists our responses to requests made under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 and Environment Information Regulations (EIR) 2004.

To provide greater access to information as part of the Trust’s commitment to being open and transparent, we publish our responses to Freedom of Information requests. This is also known as the Disclosure log.  We focus on issues where we believe there is a wider public interest, where information is frequently requested, or when information is not available elsewhere. Personal details including, the requestor's name and address are removed to protect their privacy.  The Trust aims to publish responses to all requests made to our Trust within our disclosure log as we believe that this is in the public interest. However, please be aware that we may choose not to publish certain responses, particularly where they may include patient identifiable data.

Please be aware that much of the information within past responses may have been superseded in following years.
