About the Course

Information governance is an extremely important topic within the NHS. The NHS deals with 1 million people every 36 hours and holds information on every individual registered in the United Kingdom. Patients trust us with that data, and information governance is about how we handle that information. It is based on best practice guidelines and the law and is a core foundation for high quality in healthcare.
