IG Toolkit: Request for User Feedback

The Department of Health's IG Delivery Team has recently started work on the development of the Version 11 release of the Information Governance Toolkit (IGT) which is due to be launched in June 2013 and will apply to IG submissions due at the end of March 2014.  PSNC is collating feedback from pharmacies to respond to a request from the IG team for views on functional/technical improvements that could help enhance the IG Toolkit website. If you have used the site and have a view on how it can be improved, let us know by emailing before the 22nd November 2012.

It is expected that there will be a separate consultation in the coming months on the requirement set and the guidance included in the Toolkit.

PSNC welcomes the decision of the NHS Commissioning Board to review the Information Governance Toolkit and seek user views. Although there have been improvements to the usability of the Toolkit in recent years, PSNC believes that there is scope to continue to reduce bureaucracy in the current process which is leading to additional costs for the NHS without additional benefits.
