Appendix I

 

How to access information which is not available under this publication scheme

 

 

If the information you are seeking is not available under this Guide to Information, then you may wish to request it from us. The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) provides you with a right of access to the information we hold, subject to certain exemptions. The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs) separately provide a right of access to the environmental information we hold, while the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) provides a right of access to any personal information about you that we hold. Again, these rights are subject to certain exceptions or exemptions.

 

Should you wish to request a copy of any information that we hold that is not available under this publication scheme, please write to Mrs Hazel Lyons at King Street Dental Practioce, 189 King Street, Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbrightshire. DG7 1DZ 

 

Charges for information which is not available under the scheme

 

Fees for information that is not available under this scheme are outlined in The Freedom of Information (Fees for Required Disclosure) (Scotland) Regulations 2004.  If you submit a request to us for information which is not available under the current Model Publication Scheme the charges will be based on the following calculations:

 

General information requests

 

[These charges are set within The Freedom of Information (Fees for Required Disclosure) (Scotland) Regulations 2004]

 

  • There will be no charge for information requests which cost us £100 or less to process.
  • Where information costs between £100 and £600 to provide you may be asked to pay 10% of the cost. That is, if you were to ask for information that cost us £600 to provide, you would be asked to pay £50, calculated on the basis of a waiver for the first £100 and 10% of the remaining £500.
  • We are not obliged to respond to requests which will cost us over £600 to process.
  • In calculating any fee, staff time will be calculated at actual cost per staff member hourly salary rate to a maximum of £15 per person per hour.
  • We do not charge for the time to determine whether we hold the information requested, nor for the time it takes to decide whether the information can be released. Charges may be made for locating, retrieving and providing information to you.
  • In the event that we decide to impose a charge we will issue you with notification of the charge (a fees notice) and how it has been calculated. You will have three months from the date of issue of the fees notice in which to decide whether to pay the charge. The information will be provided to you on payment of the charge. If you decide not to proceed with the request there will be no charge to you.

 

 

Charges for environmental information

 

[This could include, for example, details of waste disposal. The charging scheme below can be modified: unlike a FOISA request for general information, there is no upper or lower cost limit for an EIR request and the practice can recover, in full, the cost of supplying the information]

 

  • We will ask you to pay the full cost of providing the information, with no waiver for any portion of the cost. Charges are calculated on the basis of the actual cost to the practice of providing the information. Photocopying is charged at 20p per A4 sheet for black and white copying and 50p per A4 sheet for colour copying. Postage is charged at actual rate for first class mail. Staff time is calculated at actual cost per staff member hourly salary rate to a maximum of £15 per person per hour.
  • We do not charge for the time to determine whether we hold the information requested, nor for the time it takes to decide whether the information can be released.
  • In the event of a request we will issue you with notification of the charge and how it has been calculated. The information will be provided to you on payment of the charge. If you decide not to proceed with the request there will be no charge to you.

 

Requests for your own personal data

 

These charges are set within The Data Protection (Subject Access) (Fees and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2000

 

While you cannot request personal data under the FOISA you are entitled to request your own personal data from us under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). We reserve the right to charge a maximum of £50 for requests for an individual’s own personal information.
