Working together in supporting those responsible for delivery of good information governance.

A joint letter from NHS Chief Executive Sir David Nicholson and Information Commissioner Christopher Graham  explains the intention of the NHS and the Information Commissioner’s Office to work together in supporting those responsible for delivery of good information governance.

The protection of sensitive patient information has always been a priority for those working in the NHS.  With changes planned to commissioning structures and with increasingly diverse care providers, it is vital to ensure that those responsible continue to give information governance the priority and attention it needs.
