Reassuringly Governed Information
Hilditch works with the majority of NHS Hospital Trusts throughout the UK, and since its inception in 1990 has built a reputation for responsible data management. As the market leader in the resale of medical and healthcare assets, we treat the identification and wiping of any residual patient and confidential data with the utmost care.
Since February 2016, we have consistently achieved an extremely high score for compliance with The NHS Information Governance Toolkit - a Department of Health (DoH) Policy delivery vehicle that the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is commissioned to develop and maintain.
The toolkit draws together the legal rules and central guidance set out by DoH policy and presents them in in a single standard as a set of information governance requirements. Assessments are available online for anyone to check.
The NHS has stringent procedures in place with regards to the handling of patient data and sensitive information, and the IG Toolkit accreditation assures them that we, as resellers, abide by their strict code of conduct and reflect those stringent procedures.
We are proud to say that Hilditch meet required criteria and are able to provide this reassurance to NHS Trusts who wish to sell equipment. Our commitment and participation in The NHS Information Governance Toolkit sets us apart from competitors and offers peace of mind to vendors, making Hilditch a preferred service provider to the NHS.
