Nominations are open for the National Health and Social Care Information Governance Annual Awards 2020

Given the strange and worrying times in which we are living and working, it’s time to spread some Information Governance joy!


Working in Information Governance can be a tough and lonely place, whether as an Information Governance professional or as someone supportive of the discipline.


Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their hard Information Governance work?


The National Health and Social Care Strategic Information Governance Network (SIGN) acknowledge the work of its peers with Annual Awards.


The categories are:

- Information Governance Professional of the Year (healthcare)
- Information Governance Professional of the Year (social care)
- Information Sharing Champion of the Year
- Information Governance Innovator of the Year
- Information Governance Team of the Year
- Information Governance Human Encyclopaedia
- Outstanding Contribution to Information Governance

To nominate someone for an award, this Nomination Form must be used. Nominations can be made by anyone, including Information Governance and non-Information Governance peers, as well as patients and members of the public.


- Nominations open on 6 July
- Nominations close on 30 September
- Judging will take place during October
- Winners will be announced in early November

The judging process will be nominee blind, including name, gender and, where possible, organisations. Judging is undertaken by a sub-committee of the SIGN, made up of experience Information Governance Professionals.

Given the uncertainty of the times we currently live in, there may not be a formal Awards Ceremony; winners will be contacted informally by a member of the judging panel, ahead of the announcement being made.
