What does Information Standard certification mean?

Organisations that achieve the Information Standard are demonstrating their commitment to trustworthy health and care information as well as providing assurances of the quality of their internal processes.

When you see The Information Standard quality mark on any materials, you can be assured that the organisation has undergone a rigorous assessment and that the information they produce is high quality and people can use it. This will help people to make informed decisions, for themselves and their family, when it comes to considering health and care options.

If you’re looking for trustworthy health or care information, look for The Information Standard quality mark:
