The Information Commissioner's Office

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) upholds the Data Protection Act (2018), the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and The Freedom of Information Act (2000). It has the power to issue fines:

  • Of up to 4% of an organisation’s annual turnover or €20 million (or the equivalent in £’s) for reckless loss or misuse of personal information, which leads to substantial damage or distress.
  • Of up to 2% of an organisation’s annual turnover or €10 million (or the equivalent in £’s) for those who do not report serious breaches of personal information.

View the ICO’s 'Action taken and enforcement’  web page for details on organisations that have been fined and the reasons why.

The Information Commissioner is responsible for monitoring and enforcing compliance with the The Freedom of Information Act (2000) and introduced a Model Publication Scheme.

Our Publication Scheme

We have a Publication Scheme which contains all the information we are required to publish as a public body and more. 

The list below outlines the seven classes of information contained within the ICO's Model Publication Scheme. DCHS has adopted this scheme. 



DCHS strives to ensure all published information is widely accessible to all.  This includes financial information relating to projected and actual income and expenditure, tendering, procurement and contracts.

  • Annual report, accounts and other publications here.
  • Financial reports are provided to DCHS' board meetings.
  • Agenda for Change pay and banding structures can be viewed on the NHS Employers website here.
