Information Governance ensures necessary safeguards for, and appropriate use of Personal Confidential Data (PCD).
The Information Governance Toolkit (Statement of Compliance) is the process by which organisations enter into an agreement with the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) for access to its services. Completion and compliance to the Toolkit also gives NHS organisations access to HSCIC services which include the NHS National Network (N3). The terms and conditions of access are set out in the IG Assurance Statement which is a required element of the IG Toolkit.
The Information Governance Portal is a resource that can be used by organisations who enter into formal agreements with NHS Staffordshire and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit (SLCSU). The Portal is the tool that shares ‘best practice’, exemplar resource materials, frequently asked questions (FAQ’s), news articles, training event information and useful links to IG related websites. It’s your One-Stop-Shop.
Don't fall foul of security breaches, protect your information and remain compliant with regulations.
