About The Information Standard

NHS England is committed to improving the quality of health and care information that is available to the public, patients and health and care professionals.

We believe information that is clear, accurate, evidence-based, up-to-date and easy to use Allow people, patients and communities to become better informed and more involved in their health and care.

The Information Standard was developed in response to the large amount of health and care information available to the public and patients.

NHS England has undertaken a fundamental review of the current operating model to identify a new approach that not only better supports our aims and ambitions but is also less burdensome for organisations. NHS England remains firmly committed to The Information Standard, as a quality standard, and will continue to provide leadership to, and influence on, the health and care system. The outcome of the review will be shared here, and with members directly, in early August.
