This week saw the launch of the Department of Health’s long awaited Information Strategy; The power of information: putting all of us in control of the health and care information we need. The strategy sets a ten-year framework for transforming information for health and care and focuses on information in its broadest sense, including the support people need to navigate and understand the information available. One of the key ambitions of the Strategy is that information should be “regarded as a health and care service in its own right for us all – with appropriate support in using information available for those who need it, so that information benefits everyone and helps reduce inequalities.” Mark Duman, PiF’s Chair has broadly welcomed the Strategy, however, he highlights concerns about the current lack of integration of this ‘essential service’ within the NHS.
