All organisations have committed to the overriding principles of a DH concordant to:
- collect data that is proportionate and with a clear business purpose
- not duplicate other data collections
- work through NHS Digital as the national base for all data
- review the need to collect the data regularly
As an ALB we also have produced our own burden reduction plan. It shows what we are doing to reduce the data burden on health and social care organisations and follows the NHS Confederation report which was published in 2013.
