Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care
Changes to the role of ISB with regard to information standards and collections
Update, July 2013:
Following discussions with the Department of Health, NHS England and the HSCIC, the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care (ISB) has been asked to continue its present role until 31 December 2013, work with the new system from January until March 2014 and then pass all future responsibility to the new system.
This means that:
- ISB processes will be maintained until 31 March 2014
- Information Standards Notices will continue to be published on this website
- Department of Health and NHS England representatives have joined the ISB.
As part of the organisational transition, ISB undertook a review of the standards issued since April 1997 and published either as DSCNs or ISNs. It is proposed that the standards identified as no longer being in use are withdrawn in readiness to hand over to the new structure and process in 2014. For further details, please see the Advance Notification issued in September 2013.
Further information will be shared as soon as it is agreed and supported.
