Information Governance for the NHS is defined as:
“the structures, policies and practice of the healthcare industry, the DH, the NHS, the Independent sector and its suppliers to ensure the confidentiality and security of all records, and especially patient records, and to enable the ethical use of them for the benefit of individual patients and the public good”
