Care Record Development Board

The Care Record Development Board (CRDB) closed at the end of September 2007.

The functions of the CRDB were taken over by a new body, the National Information Governance Board for Health and Social Care (NIGB).

The Department of Health's NIGB press release (PDF 18Kb) gives more background. To contact the NIGB please email

The Care Record Development Board (CRDB) brought together patients and service users, the public, and social and healthcare professionals within a single forum that helped to set the new model for care. It worked to enable sharing of information, scheduling and processes across traditional boundaries.

The Board was chaired by Harry Cayton, the Chief Executive of the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence, and previously the National Director for Patients and the Public in the Department of Health.

The Care Record Guarantee

The NHS Care Record Guarantee sets out the rules that will govern information held in the NHS Care Records Service.

Information Governance review

The National Programme Board asked Harry Cayton, the National Director for Patients and the Public and Chair of the Care Record Development Board, to carry out a high level review of Information Governance in the Department of Health and the wider NHS.
