Information is one of the Trust’s most important assets and, just like our staff, our buildings and our equipment, needs to be carefully managed and looked after.
“Information Governance” is a term which describes the Trust’s strategy for meeting all of its regulatory and business requirements around managing information.
Good Information Governance means that information will be:
- Available when we need it
- Of sufficient quality to inform the decisions that we take and to understand the decisions that we have taken
- Handled securely, to ensure that access is only granted to those individuals with a lawful entitlement
The Trust also recognises and actively seeks to uphold the rights of individuals to access information held by the Trust.
