This is a complete guide to the information routinely made available to the public by Morgan Optometry. It is a description of the information about our NHS services that we make publicly available. It will be reviewed at regular intervals.

Guide information

We will publish any changes we make to this guide or relevant information. We will also publish any proposed changes or additions to publications already available.

Cost of information

For the most part, we will only charge for hard copies, or copies onto media. Charges are as follows and will be reviewed regularly.

  • Accessed from our website – free of charge
  • Single hard copies – free of charge
  • As the Freedom of Information Act applies to the provision of information, a request for multiple hard copies does not fall within the provisions of the Act and will attract a charge for retrieval, photocopying and postage. We will inform you of the cost of charges that need to be paid in advance
  • Email will be free of charge

Your rights to information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 is designed to promote openness and accountability amongst all organisations that receive public money

Like all NHS contractors, since 1 January 2005 there has been a FOI obligation on optical practices to respond to requests about the NHS related information that they hold, and a right of access to that information has been established in law

These rights are subject to exemptions (see below) that have to be taken into consideration before releasing information

In addition to accessing the information identified in this guide, you are entitled to request information about our NHS services under the NHS Openness Code 1995

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, you are also entitled to access your clinical records or any other personal information held about you and you can contact any practice where your records are held to do this


If you have any comments about the operation of the Publication Scheme, or how we have dealt with your request for information from the scheme, please write to:

Freedom of Information Officer, Morgan Optometry, 106a Oxford Road, Kidlington, Oxon, OX5 1BL

Classes of Information

All NHS information at Morgan Optometry is held, retained and destroyed within NHS guidelines.  Our commitment to publish information excludes any information that can be legitimately withheld under the exemptions set out in the NHS Openness Code or Freedom of Information Act 2000, the main reasons being the protection of commercial interests and personal information under the Data Protection Act 1998. This scheme has been written in accordance with those exemptions. The information on this scheme is grouped into the following categories:
