We're able to give you most kinds of information, unless there's a good reason not to.

You can also get information we have about you, under the Information Privacy (IP) process. If some information we have about you is wrong, you can tell us to fix it.

Before you apply

Check if it's already online, or if we plan to release it in the future.

  • Disclosure logs list information that's already been released for other Right to Information access requests. It also includes the details of current RTI applications.
  • Publication scheme tells you where to find information about who we are and how we work, including our Annual Report.
  • Open data strategy describes the data we collect and a timetable for when we will publish it.
  • The Queensland Government Open Data Portal and Data page is where you can download Department of Health data.

We also invite you to contact our Clinical Information Access Unit before you make an RTI or IP application. We may be able to help you find the information without using the RTI process.

How to apply

You can apply online or download an application form on the Queensland Government's website.

If you download the form, send it to our Clinical Information Access Unit. Their details are below.

What happens next

We will look at your application and decide if we can release the information you asked for.

If we can release it, we'll contact you with the information you asked for. If we can't release it, we will explain why.

If you’re not satisfied with our decision on your application, you can apply to have it reviewed. You need to do this within 20 business days from the date on the letter telling you our decision.

You can also ask the Information Commissioner to review our decision.
