Freedom of information

Information access requests to NHS Education for Scotland

You have the right to request access to information held by any Scottish public authority, including NES, under three separate regimes:

  • The Data Protection Act 1998 for personal information about you as an individual.
  • The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 for information relating to the environment.
  • The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 for all other information.

Arrangements for permission to re-use NES documents are covered by the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 

To make a request under any of these regimes, use the contact details below.

A range of information is available already online through this website.  NES has adopted the Model Publication Scheme and further advice on finding published NES information can be found in the NES Guide to information (see below).

Under the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011, NES has a Records Management Plan approved by the Keeper of the Records of Scotland.

If you have questions or comments about access to information in NES, please contact:
