The CCG Authorisation: Draft Applicants’ Guide has now been published and can be viewed
Page 29 of the guide makes reference to the evidence required for authorisation - that
the "CCG has used the NHS Information Governance toolkit to assess its capability to
meet information governance requirements".
For assistance with registration, CCGs should send a request to the Exeter Service Desk firstname.lastname@example.org.
The request should be marked for attention of IGTK 3rd line and should contain the following information:
- The name of the CCG;
- The full address of the CCG including postcode;
- The name and contact details (email address and phone number) of the CCG staff member to be registered.
The team will assist with registration and offer advice on assessment completion and publication, if required.
The new annual release of the IG Toolkit (version 10) is scheduled for May 2012, and CCGs
may wish to wait for the new release before completing and publishing an assessment in
support of the authorisation process.
