Information Governance - IG Toolkit v14.1
The Information Governance (IG) Toolkit v14.1 was designed by the Department of Health & Social Care and NHS Digital. It pulls together into a standard set of requirements all applicable regulatory matters for health and care. The IG Toolkit will close on 31st March 2018. The Care Provider Alliance and NHS Digital have produced the following documents to support care providers in completing the IG Toolkit v.14.1.
The Care Provider Alliance recommends that, due to short timescales, only those organisations which have a pressing need to complete the current version of the IG Toolkit immediately do so. For other providers, it would be better to wait for April 2018 when the new Data Security and Protection Toolkit will be released.
The Department of Health and Social Care have provided guidance on data security and protection requirements for social care.
