Publication scheme

As a public organisation, we publish various types of information and we aim to be open transparent about our performance.

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we have a duty to specify where the information can be found and whether if it can be accessed freely or if there is a fee.

Our publication scheme is a useful place to start if you’re looking for information about our Trust, before making a Freedom of Information request.

Currently, most of our data is published in PDF format. However we are working toward using more accessible standards, for both cross-platform compatibility and usability.

The information we publish falls into one of the following seven categories.

Who we are and what we do

Our finances

Decision making

  • Information about how we make decisions and associated documents can be found in our Board of Directors meetings and minutes

Our performance and priorities

Business planning and reports are available in our latest Board papers

Policies and procedures

Register of Interests and Register of Gifts and Hospitality

All staff are required to declare any interests which may cause a conflict in doing their day to day work. together with any gifts and hospitality received during the course of their work.   

In particular the Trust asks that all 'decision making staff', defined as those who are considered as Very Senior Managers and all staff on Agenda for Change pay scales 8d and above and those in equivalent clinical roles, such as consultants, as well as those people who can influence purchasing decisions, to make an annual declaration of interests. This includes providing a Nil Return where they have nothing to declare. This information is then published on the Trust website for public scrutiny.

This information will be regularly updated to reflect any new appointments, leavers or changes to declared interests or updated gifts and hospitality information.

If you have any questions about the above processes or the published data, please contact the Company Secretary by email on bhrut.trust.secretary@nhs.net

NHS provider licence declaration

Each year NHS Trusts are required to self-certify that they can meet the obligations set out in the NHS Provider Licence. Although NHS Trusts are exempt from needing the provider licence, directions from the Secretary of State require NHS Improvement to ensure that NHS Trusts comply with conditions equivalent to the licence as it deems appropriate. This is a retrospective declaration stating whether we were satisfied that we took the necessary precautions in the last financial year (2019/20).

There are two conditions which the Trust is required to sign off against:

The provider has taken all precautions necessary to comply with the licence, NHS Acts and NHS Constitution (Condition G6(3)).

  • The provider has complied with required governance arrangements (Condition FT4(8)).
  • NHS Trusts are specifically required to publish the declaration for general condition 6.

The Trust Board considered the evidence to support compliance against this conditions at its meeting held on 17 June 2020 and confirmed that it was compliant. More detail on the process and evidence considered can be downloaded in the Board paper (pdf fomat)

For more information on the self-assessment please contact the Company Secretary via email on bhrut.trust.secretary@nhs.net
