There is long-standing confusion caused by the legislation, records management guidance, security and confidentiality policies that apply to the NHS. The concept of information governance intends to offer an appropriate means by which to support compliance with existing legislation and good information confidentiality and security practice in the NHS. It has been defined as: a framework which aims to support organisations and individuals in the NHS to ensure that personal information is dealt with legally, securely, efficiently and effectively, in order to deliver the best possible care.1.
