Who can use the PRSB's standards?

The information record standards and the associated documents and guidance have been produced by the Professional Record Standards Body. The PRSB is a UK-wide, not-for-profit organisation established by the Department of Health and the Academy of Royal Medical Colleges.

We encourage their use by commercial vendors to develop digital software applications that provide health and care solutions. The standards should not be used without permission for commercial gain by third party professional services business. The intellectual property remains with the PRSB and its commissioners.

“The work of the PRSB has been incredibly helpful. It’s ensured that we have been able to engage with all the professions that need to understand the process, practice and implications of the standard. It will allow us to move information around the whole of the of the NHS”
