Everyone who uses health and care services should be able to trust that their personal confidential data is protected.

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) helps adult social care providers in England to check and improve how they keep people’s information safe. It is the official self-assessment tool for the care sector and is widely recognised by CQC, local authorities and the NHS.

By using the DSPT on an annual basis and reaching Standards Met we are able to:

  • reassure people who use our services, their families and our staff that we are managing their information safely, securely and legally.
  • demonstrate that we meet legal requirements including Data Protection Legislation and the Data Security Standards

Our DSP Toolkit status of Standards Met is publicly available for service users, commissioners, partner organisations and the public at https://www.dsptoolkit.nhs.uk/OrganisationSearch/A7QP
