Dear Rosanne Foxton

 

 

I write in response to your communication of March 18^th in which you ask
that we provide our policies and associated standards for minimum
information governance compliance requirements for providers of
commissioned services and copies of any Data Sharing Agreements to which
commissioned service providers are party.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Community Health Council is a statutory
organisation, that provides an  independent voice representing the
public’s interest in the NHS and monitors the quality of the NHS services
provided within the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg area. We do not commission
services and therefore do not have policies or standards for minimum
information governance compliance requirements for providers of
commissioned services. Further, we are not party to any Data Sharing
Agreements.

 

 

Additionally you ask:

 

·         How the  CHC assesses and monitors provider compliance to ensure
that patient and service user information is safe in commissioned
providers' hands, including a description of the evidence that is required
from providers to demonstrate their compliance?

·         The number of occasions where providers of commissioned services
have been found to be non-compliant with Information Governance
requirements?

 

 

As we do not commission services, we do not have a process to monitor
compliance.

 

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

Clare Jenkins

Chief Officer/ Prif Swyddog
Abertawe Bro Morgannwg CHC/CIC
