Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Greater Glasgow NHS Board,

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act relating to your bodies’ duties under the Human Rights Act (1998) and Scotland Act (1998) to comply with the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)

Section 6 of the Human Rights Act obliges public authorities to comply with the ECHR and Sections 29 and 57 of the Scotland Act oblige the Scottish Parliament and Ministers to likewise act in a way compatible with the ECHR.

The Human Rights Act framework establishes that; the ECHR rights form a common set of binding values among public bodies; public bodies must have human rights principles in mind when making decisions about people’s rights, and that human rights must be part of all policy.

Specifically i would like to request any information you hold regarding:

1. How your authority has monitored and evaluated its compliance with the Human Rights Act and any outputs from the monitoring and evaluation process.
2. Specific actions taken to comply with the HRA and ECHR. For example only, this might include staff training, employment of a human rights lawyer to advise on policy, carrying out due diligence on any private bodies contracted or outsourced to (the HRA applies to all bodies performing a public function, including private companies), carrying out human rights impact assessments on policy.
3. Human rights considerations related to any change of practice or services provided due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

I would like to request the information outlined in points 1 and 2 above for the calendar year of 2019, and points 1,2 and 3 for the period of the Covid-19 pandemic, March – September 2020. I would like the information broken down by these two time periods.

If you have any questions or require clarification please contact me promptly.

Yours faithfully,

elizabeth thomson
