NHS England oversees the budget, planning, delivery and day-to-day operation of the commissioning side of the NHS in England. Employing over 6,000 staff across 50 sites in the United Kingdom, NHS England is a well-oiled machine with responsibilities that ultimately help make the NHS one of the best and most respected healthcare systems in the world.
IG Smart Ltd was commissioned to develop a GDPR NHS Privacy by Design National Framework for NHS England, which will be used as a model for all health and social care organisations to embed privacy and data protection into all systems, processes and technologies by default, in compliance with GDPR.
Our Information Governance and GDPR Consultants worked with national key stakeholders across a wide spectrum of disciplines to ensure that the Privacy by Design Framework met the needs of the entire UK health and social care system.
With Privacy by Design being such a core mandatory component for GDPR compliance, we are proud to know that health and social care organisations across the country will benefit from guidance created by IG Smart.
IG Smart Ltd has been commissioned to deliver a number of other programmes for NHS England, including:
- Developing and delivering the National Information Governance Support Package for the New Models of Care “Test Beds”
- Providing strategic privacy and data sharing advice to NHS Englands Chief Data Officer, Head of Information Governance and the National Data Privacy & Sharing Unit
- Managing the Information Governance approvals ‘gateway’ process for all NHS England publications (including all national policies, contracts and strategies)
