Transition Guidance

This transition guidance emerged from discussions at Board meetings about the proposals in the Health and Social Care Bill and feedback to the NIGB from healthcare and information governance professionals about the changes that were being implemented in anticipation of legislative changes.  The guidance  is intended to support organisations in maintaining good information governance during the transition to new organisational structures. Its purpose is to identify information governance issues and risks, understand their potential impact and provide guidance on how they can be addressed.

An action plan template for Transition guidance is now available.

The NIGB recognises the need to be responsive in times of change and therefore welcomes feedback by email to nigb@nhs.net using the feedback form below.
