Place management and Global Location Numbers (GLN)


Place management and Global Location Numbers (GLN)


This course is designed to help healthcare providers and their suppliers, to implement a consistent method of managing place information. Specifically, it will provide guidance on the standards and best practice related to the creation and management of GLNs.

This supports the requirements outlined by the Department of Health and Social Care for trusts in England, but more widely supports the standardisation of effective place management for provider organisations across the UK's four nations.

Through successful completion of the course, individuals will have demonstrated their GS1 standards expertise, providing them with the skills to roll out implementation programmes within their own organisations.
