Message from Nicola Strother Smith, National Director, NHS Diabetes and Kidney Care
This special edition of the NHS Health Check eBulletin has been developed to provide you with the latest position and developments relating to NHS Health Check information governance and information technology matters..
I am also pleased to inform you that an information governance and information technology sub-group (IGITSG) – of which NHS Diabetes and Kidney Care is a key member - has been established. This group reports to the Department of Health NHS Health Check Delivery and Transition Steering Group (DTSG) ensuring that there is an expert forum to advise the DTSG on related matters. Further information on the establishment of this group is included in the eBulletin.
All operational queries about the NHS Health Check programme, or questions about the Learning Network should be directed to Eleanor Kent-Dyson. Policy queries should continue to be directed to the NHS Health Check team at the Department of Health using their dedicated mailbox .
