7 days to go – deadline for IG toolkit submission

March 24, 2016

Most pharmacy contractors will have completed their IG toolkit submission. PSNC strongly recommend that all pharmacy contractors who are yet to do so make this a priority, especially given the impending Easter break. All NHS community pharmacies in England must provide information governance assurances to the NHS on an annual basis. These assurances are provided through completion of an online assessment tool, the IG toolkit. Requirements for IG change annually, and Version 13 of the IG toolkit is the current one to completed no later than 31st March 2016. 

Pharmacies are expected to attain Level 2 against each of the pharmacy IG requirements. 

We also remind pharmacy contractors that community pharmacy is no longer exempt from requirement 319 – the requirement to have a business continuity plan.

Guidance on developing a plan can be found in the clinical governance section of the website and further support in completing the IG toolkit is available here.
