Data controller console
The data controller console is a new online system that aims to make it easier and more efficient for NHS organisations in London to store, update and track the status of information sharing agreements.
Information sharing agreements exist between many NHS organisations in London and are often paper agreements.The console aims to make the process of creating, agreeing and updating information sharing agreements more efficient and less time consuming. The console will reduce paperwork and make it easier to track sign up by organisations and make changes to existing agreements. The main users of the console will be information governance managers in trusts, care providers, local authorities and practice managers in GP practices.
The console was launched in North West London and North East London in February, with NHS organisations registered on the new system. These organisations can now upload their existing information sharing agreements onto the system and send requests to other NHS organisations to accept these agreements. Planning is now in progress to roll out the console to other NHS organisations across London, with training for users on-going. The console will also be further developed so it can be used by social care organisations in London, and support other types of agreements.
