Written answers (Question to Health)

The requirement, under section 8 of the Freedom of Information legislation, to publish a Publication Scheme was completed, by my Department, within the legislative timeframe.

Our Publication Scheme is primarily made up of links to the relevant pages on our website.  Therefore, the Scheme is continually being updated in accordance with updates made by all Units within my Department. 

Other information (e.g. log of Freedom of Information requests received etc.) is updated quarterly in arrears.  The latest update was in March of this year and the second and third quarter information is currently being worked on and it is hoped to have it published shortly.
