What is IG?

Information Governance is a legal framework which provides guidance to individuals who handle information on behalf of their organisation. It highlights the importance of protecting Personal Confidential Data (PCD) and promoting access to corporate information.

Information Handling

When working within any organisation, it is very important that we handle all information appropriately, however even more care and attention is needed when handling Personal Confidential Data (PCD).

Why do we need IG?

Information Governance references specific legislation that must be adhered to in order to keep on the right side of the law, namely: The Data Protection Act 1998, Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Human Rights Act 1998 (Article 8). NHS organisations must also demonstrate compliance to the Caldicott Principles and other NHS publications that are accessible via this website.
