Freedom of Information

The vast majority of FOI requests received by Eastern Health are from patients or their representatives seeking access to their medical records. This may include a request for information of past and current illnesses, operations or procedures performed, pathology and radiology results, or medications prescribed.

In some cases, information may be withheld if it is exempt under the Freedom of Information legislation, for example, sensitive information about or from other person.

A small number of requests are received for other documents, such as policies, standards or procedures.
