Guidance for NHS boards: Information governance

The NHS chief executive, David Nicholson, in his recent communications to NHS chief
executives, has made it clear that the ultimate responsibility for information governance in the
NHS rests with the board of each organisation.

This guidance sets out details about those responsibilities, and the questions that board
members should ask to assure themselves that information is effectively and appropriately
used in their organisation.

National demographic service user group launches

National demographics services are widely-used by NHS organisations and their partners in
health and social care provision.
Among other things, they enable patients to be readily identified by staff and associated with
care records, for data in these records to be shared between care providers, and for patients to
be correctly registered and associated with health care planning and commissioning agencies.
The patient's NHS Number is extensively and increasingly used as the key identifier and link, in
line with national policy and patient safety advice.
Whilst these services are well-established, new and changing requirements, along with
operational issues, mean that there is a need for continuous improvement and enhancement to
the services, as well as improved advice, guidance and support for users and system suppliers.
The national demographics user group has therefore been re-established with a wider
representation of key stakeholders in order to utilise the experience of national NHS
demographics services users. This will help users to shape and prioritise the development,
delivery and enhancement of these services, and to ensure that their use is optimised.
The user group is also used to share and cascade news of programme plans and progress,
highlight current priorities and promote any training and education opportunities to users of
national demographics services.
The first user group has taken place, but further updates are available on the NHS Connecting
for Health (NHS CFH) website:

Final chance to complete NHSmail survey

The deadline for the annual NHSmail survey is Monday 15 August 2011. It is NHSmail users’
