Freedom of Information and Publication Scheme

The Glasgow City Integration Joint Board is required to comply with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 in making information that it holds available to the public either on request or proactively via its publication scheme.

The Integration Joint Board was constituted on 8 February 2016 and became fully operational from 1 April 2016.  As such, it currently has limited information available.  Most of the information about community health and social care is held by Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Should you want information about the Glasgow City Integration Joint Board, please refer initially to its Publication Scheme and Guide to Information.

Requesting Information

If you cannot find the information that you are looking for either in the Publication Scheme or the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership’s website, then you can make a request for any information held by us.

Please note, however, that the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership is not a Scottish Public Authority as defined in section 3 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. This means that the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership is not subject to requests made under this legislation.

Instead, Freedom of Information requests can be made to either (or both) Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (as well as the Glasgow City Integrated Joint Board as noted above).  The contact details for both Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are below:
