Publications

We aim to publish a wide variety of helpful information. Below you can find out more about the Publications Scheme, or, if you are looking for something in particular, you can use the links below to go to your area of interest.

The Publications Scheme

NHS Manchester CCG is committed to meeting the statutory requirements of the Freedom Of Information Act and has adopted the Information Commissioners Office’s (ICO) Model Publication Scheme. We will produce information as it becomes available in line with the ICO’s Definition Document for Health Bodies in England.

This Publication Scheme is divided into classes as defined by the Information Commissioner’s Office and has been designed to give you a complete guide to the information routinely published by Manchester CCG. It is not an exhaustive list of all the types of information that we publish – our policy is to publish proactively as much information as we can where the information would have a wider public interest. The scheme does not include information that we consider to be sensitive, such as certain types of commercial or personal information. For further information on the model publication scheme, please see the Information Commissioner’s Office Guidance.
