In late 2014 the IGA was asked by the Department of Health to lead a review of the NHS Record Management Code of Practice. Before this, the Code was last reviewed in 2006, with minor updates also issued in 2009.
Elisabeth Belisle, Managing Director of Scandox was selected to be part of the committee of experts brought together to quality assure and make changes, where necessary, to existing guidance.
The new Code has also incorporated the answers to common questions about records management that have been asked to the Health & Social Care Information Centre, the National Archives and the Department of Health since 2009. The Code also includes changes to policy and legislation where applicable and has incorporated the evolution of the digital health record.
