Information Governance Transition Guidance
A series of documents forming transition guidance for NHS bodies has emerged from discussions at Board meetings about the proposals in the Health and Social Care Bill and feedback to the NIGB (National Information Governance Board) from healthcare and information governance professionals about the changes that were being implemented in anticipation of legislative changes.
The guidance is intended to support organisations in maintaining good information governance during the transition to new organisational structures. Its purpose is to identify information governance issues and risks, understand their potential impact and provide guidance on how they can be addressed.
The NIGB recognises the need to be responsive in times of change and therefore welcomes feedback.
The guidance can be downloaded from www.nigb.nhs.uk
