Standards

Standards are set to provide the consistency necessary to support organisations to offer reliable, effective, timely and quality public health and social care services.

Index Cards

Underpinned by supporting guidance, standards specify rules for the collection, processing, management and sharing of information to support patient care.


"Any public body which exercises functions in connection with the provision of health services or of adult social care in England must have regard to information standards published as per Health and Social Care 2012, Section 250."
