What is a Publication Scheme?

A Publication Scheme sets out an organisation’s commitment and process for the dissemination of information to the public.

It includes what, how, when, and where certain information is released and how an organisation will respond to requests from the public for information the organisation holds which is not in the public domain.

This is the Publication Scheme for Cheshire & Merseyside Cancer Alliance (CMCA).
