Right to Information (RTI)

Make a Right to Information (RTI) request

The Right to Information (RTI) process is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information. The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

This is defined under two pieces of legislation:

Check available information

Before making a request through the RTI process, you should check to see if the information is already available online:

  • Disclosure logs list information which has been released in response to RTI access requests and provides a description of current applications.
  • Publication schemes describes and categorises information routinely available from Queensland Health.
  • Openness and transparency index lists additional data available for download.

Right of review

If you are dissatisfied with the department's decision on your access application you can apply to have that decision reviewed.

An application to have a decision internally reviewed must be made within 20 business days of the date of the letter communicating that decision. Please contact us for more information.   

You can also apply to have our decision reviewed by the Information Commissioner: www.oic.qld.gov.au/about.
