Information governance remains a key priority for UK healthcare sector against a background of reforms in integrating health and care. It is generally accepted that sharing and analysing data will improve health and care outcomes for patients and users and produce efficiencies and cost effectiveness of resources and time. But there are challenges and barriers to implementing information sharing including:

- Ensuring compliance with data protection legislation (Data Governance) while striking a balance between sharing and accessing personal data on the one hand, and the rights of patients and confidentiality on the other.

- Breaking down the institutional barriers to sharing, collating, analysing data and information.

- Developing senior leadership buy-in to create trust and commonality of purpose between agencies.

- Educating clinicians / practitioners / managers on how analytics can be used to provide tailored services that suit the needs of local populations and work towards preventing health crises and re-admissions.

- Educating the general population and patients and so changing their attitude and behaviour in the use of their personal data - proving that sharing and analysing data will improve health and care outcomes, and in time move towards a more preventative approach to health and social care.

How can a chain of trust be created both for the producers of the data and the consumers of the data so that they are confident it is appropriately used and accurate for its purpose?
