The healthcare sector is privy to some of our most sensitive personal information and we trust that it is dealt with confidentially and discreetly. As such, all staff within a healthcare setting have a responsibilty to conform to the laws of Information Governance.

Information Governance refers to the way the NHS or social care organisations deal with patient and employee data and how the sharing of this information between care provision services is regulated. This course, developed by healthcare industry training experts Espirita, examines information governance legislation, Caldicott protocols, the role of the Caldicott Guardian and staff responsibilities with a focus on issues that are relevant to healthcare professionals.
