About our publication scheme

As a requirement of Queensland's Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act), we publish a broad range of information for the community to access. The publication scheme describes and categorises information that's available to you.

It’s been developed to give the community greater access to information held by our health service.

Most of our documents can be downloaded from our website.
