IG toolkit for 2017/18 now live

July 10, 2017

The IG toolkit version 14.1 for 2017/18 is now available for completion.

The deadline for submitting this year’s information governance (IG) return is 31st March 2018. This may seem sometime away but approaches quickly before we know it.

Therefore, PSNC encourage community pharmacy contractors to complete the IG toolkit sooner rather than later and perhaps use this IG submission exercise as an opportunity to comprehensively review IG processes, if this hasn’t taken place in recent years.

Further guidance and support is available at: psnc.org.uk/ig

Also please don’t forget that primary care information governance reports are published and available in the public domain. Therefore, whilst the IG toolkit is primarily used to demonstrate to NHS England compliance with IG requirements in the terms of service, contractors can appreciate that patients looking for suitable providers of pharmaceutical services can use IG scoring as an objective means of assessing the likelihood that a particular contractor will provide highly quality pharmaceutical services.
