What is Information Governance?

Information Governance ensures the appropriate use of information (both corporate and personal) within the NHS. All staff with access to NHS patient information should undertake appropriate information governance training.

What is the IG Training Tool?

It contains a range of online modules and assessments which help staff understand information governance and assist employers provide appropriate training and maintain individual training records for the online modules.

Registered users can complete modules and obtain a certificate (pass mark 80%). Try the "Guest Tour" (no need to register) to view a selection of the modules (without the assessment), handouts, useful links and publications available.

The Information Governance homepage, where you will find the modules and assessments, can be found at the following address:
