1997

A working group of the Medicine and Health Panel developed Good Practice Guidance on Information Management for NHS Board Members. Published by the NHS Executive and issued to all NHS organisations in England and to several in the rest of the UK, the guidance was supported by the signatures of: The Master; the Head of IM&T, NHS Executive; the Controller and Auditor General; the Controller of the Audit Commission; and the President of the British Computer Society. An updated version of the guidance was produced in 2002, again with assistance from the Medicine and Health Panel and with the same level of senior signatures in support.
