Strategic information governance networks (SIGNs)

There are regional information governance networks across England, which provide a network of local and regional groups that are part of the National Health and Social Care Strategic Information Governance Network (National SIGN). Many of these have been in existence for many years. 

They are attended by professionals in the field of information governance and are designed to help and support other professionals in the field with best practice and sharing of resources. Issues identified locally are frequently escalated to the national SIGN. The SIGN network can support centralised organisations with feedback, help to influence the structure of their advice and guidance.
