Freedom of Information

The Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion Act 1991 (SA) gives mem­bers of the pub­lic a legal­ly enforce­able right to access infor­ma­tion held by the South Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment, sub­ject to cer­tain conditions.

Each of SA Health’s agen­cies oper­ates sep­a­rate­ly for the pur­pos­es of Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion (FOI) legislation. 

There is a $36.75 FOI appli­ca­tion fee and some requests incur an addi­tion­al pro­cess­ing charge. An FOI Offi­cer will advise you of these charges once your appli­ca­tion is received for processing. 

For gen­er­al infor­ma­tion, includ­ing where to apply and how doc­u­ments can be accessed, and costs, see Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion.

How to apply

When mak­ing an FOI appli­ca­tion, you’ll need to pro­vide enough infor­ma­tion to enable the cor­rect doc­u­ments to be iden­ti­fied. If you are uncer­tain, con­tact us for assistance.

Advice about how you would like to access the doc­u­ments should be includ­ed in your FOI application.
