The IG Toolkit is an online system which allows NHS organisations and partners to assess
themselves against Department of Health Information Governance policies and standards. It also
allows members of the public to view participating organisations' IG Toolkit assessments.
Introducing the Information Governance Alliance
The Information Governance Alliance (IGA) is a group of national health and care organisations that are working together to provide
a joined up and consistent approach to information governance.
The core members of the IGA are the Department of Health, NHS England, Public Health England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre.
The IGA aims to improve information governance in health and care by:
- Providing a single authoritative source of information and guidance
- Providing support to front line staff, managers and their organisations to help them handle personal information confidently and in the best interests of people who use their services
- Developing the capacity and capability of the information governance profession by providing expert advice and a knowledge sharing network
The IGA has identified a set of key health and care information governance documents on confidentiality, security and records management
