  • How you can contribute to the review

NHS Future Forum recommendation

The Government should commission a review of the current information governance rules

. . . to ensure that there is an appropriate balance between the protection of patient information and the use and sharing of information to improve patient care”

NHS Future Forum, January 2012

NHS Future Forum recommendation

The NHS must move towards using its IT systems to share data about individual patients and service users electronically – in the interests of high quality care”

NHS Future Forum, January 2012

‘A very strong and clear message that not sharing information has the potential to do more harm than sharing it. It is also a major annoyance for patients who feel that they should not constantly have to repeat the same information about themselves as they pass through the treatment pathway’

NHS Future Forum - Principles

  • Responsible data sharing underpins quality of care

  • IG is a balance between facilitating use and protecting

  • Data is the patient’s - need to treat their data with respect as part of respecting them

  • Normal presumption that all those involved in care have access with consent

  • An implicit deal between the service and users and a responsibility to inform on use as well as keep confidential – a key issue is that with the advent of electronic records – and a changing model of care provision – we need to renegotiate the social contract between the public and services

IG Review Panel

  • Panel – 15 members

  • Process of selection – key areas were identified and then relevant organisations were approached for suggestions

  • Members appointed in their own right not as representatives

  • Monthly meetings

  • Additional evidence gathering sessions

IG Review Process

  • Timetable – intention to feed into NHS Constitution consultation for October

  • Interim report and then final report

    Dec 2012 / Jan 2013

  • Secretariat – currently 3 staff

  • Steering group – 3 & staff

IG Review Draft Scope

  • Still to be agreed

  • Key issue to address concerns Consent and ensuring that all activities have a secure basis in law.

  • IG in the new landscape – how to have effective internal and system wide IG

  • Specific cross-sector IG issues affecting individuals and organisations

Consent and lawful processing

  • when is explicit consent needed?

  • what is needed for valid implied consent?

  • are there activities that need a secure legal basis but for which consent is not appropriate or feasible?

  • how should they be supported in law?

  • the consent process – how to seek consent and

    what to record

  • implementation through technical architecture
