IG Toolkit 2nd national survey

Personalised Health and Care 2020: a framework for action published by the National Information Board, proposed that we should, by October 2015, “relaunch the Information Governance Toolkit to reflect enhanced information governance and data security requirements”. Today (5 March 2015), to support the development of the new toolkit we have launched a second survey, which we will use to gather the views of all those with an interest in IG.

You can read more about our surveys and find out how you can respond in the News article titled ‘IG Toolkit 2nd survey launched’.
