Information Governance Alliance (IGA)
Strategic information governance advice is now being provided by NHSX.
NHSx have launched an Information Governance (IG) Portal, www.nhsx.nhs.uk/information-governance on behalf of the Health and Care IG Panel which will be the one stop shop for IG guidance and advice.
This is a core part of our ambition to simplify IG ensuring it is accessible and relevant. The online portal showcases IG advice not only for IG professionals but for patients, service users and health and care staff too.
You can email any queries to england.IGpolicyteam@nhs.net
