The Information Standard

Brain & Spine Foundation was one of the first organisations in the UK to be certified as a quality provider of health information, as part of The Information Standard, a certification scheme supported by NHS England.

The Information Standard has been developed to support people in using health and social care information and, in doing so, help people to make confident, informed decisions about their health and social care. The Information Standard mark can help people make these decisions with confidence because it offers reassurance that health and social care information carrying the mark is from a reliable source.
