About our Publication Scheme


A Publication Scheme is a specific guide to the information that an authority holds. NHS Greenwich CCG's Publication Scheme has been designed to comply with revised guidance published by the Information Commissioner's Office in 2008. As such, the information provided in this section is divided into seven classes of information as detailed below.

You will need Adobe Reader to view PDF documents. Download it free from the Adobe website.

Given the amount of recorded information that we hold, it is not possible to publish all of it on our website. If the information you are looking for is not available in this section, please submit a Freedom of Information request, you can find out more at the FOI page​ on this website

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, an organisation should proactively release information about itself within the following seven broad classes of information:

  • Who we are and what we do
  • What we spend and how we spend it
  • What are our priorities and how we are doing
  • How we make decisions
  • Our policies and procedures
  • Lists and registers
  • Services we offer

This page explains what information Greenwich makes (or expects to make) routinely available, and where it can be accessed.

If you would like a printed copy of a publication or if you would like it in a different language or format, please contact the Communications and Engagement team via 020 3049 9000 or GRECCG.NHSGreenwichCCG@nhs.net

At present, all the information we proactively release is available free of charge on our website. If in the future, we make information available but do not publish it on our website, we will update this publication scheme to explain how you can access it, and explain any charges that may be necessary.

Report of fines levied on local providers

October 2015: Under the terms of the NHS Standard Contract for 2015/16, NHS Greenwich CCG, in our role as commissioners, are required “to publish on their websites details of the sanctions due and actually applied to each of their major providers for failure to achieve national standards,” and those reports “must indicate how the commissioner has spent, or intends to spend, the funding withheld from providers through the application of sanctions.”

To fulfil this requirement, NHS Greenwich CCG publishes our latest report detailing the value of penalties levied so far this year. The report contains information for:

  • Penalties collected for Quarter 1 – split by penalty ca​tegory
  • Investment – specifically actual spend in Quarter 1 (not planned spend)

The report​ covers all of our main acute providers –

  • Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
  • King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust
  • Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust

At the time of publication, no penalties were levied against Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, our main provider of community and mental health services.​
