Information Governance (IG)

All NHS providers, including community pharmacies need to provide information governance assurances to the NHS on an annual basis. These assurances are provided through completion of an online assessment tool, the NHS Information Governance Toolkit (IGT).

Requirements for IG change annually, and the latest online version can be seen on the website www.igt.hscic.gov.uk

For further information please see the PSNC website page.

Please be aware that the requirement to complete the IG Toolkit forms part of The National Health Service (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013, Terms of Service” Part 4 – participation in a Clinical Governance programme.
