Anyone that handles data about NHS patients should read this. Care homes, rest homes, nursing homes, and any care providers that have access to patient data now have to complete a complicated self-assessment toolkit. Take a look at this report from NHS digital:

NHS Digital has launched the new Data Security and Protection Toolkit, replacing the previous Information Governance Toolkit, to help keep patient information safe.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that enables health and social care organisations to measure and publish their performance against the National Data Guardian’s ten data security standards.

All organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems – including NHS Trusts, primary care and social care providers and commercial third parties – must complete the Toolkit to provide assurance that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.

Here at Optindigo we can help you through this process. We have completed an analysis of where our GDPR documentation pack helps you meet these complicated NHS digital requirements. Our standard documents will allow you to meet their administrative requirements and complete the assessment much more easily.

Whether you are a care home, rest homes, nursing homes, or any company or person that has access to NHS patient data you need to do this. Contact us now for help!

Good luck all.
