Information governance

Information is one of the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation 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 that describes our strategy for meeting all of our 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 help understand the decisions that we have taken
  • Handled securely to make sure that access is only granted to individuals with a lawful entitlement

The Royal Devon also recognises and actively seeks to uphold the rights of individuals to access the information we hold.
