Are you seeking assistance with your NHS DSP Submission?
The upcoming deadline for submitting the Data Security & Protection Toolkit is in June 2023. It is crucial for your organisation or business, if you have access to NHS patient data and systems, to utilise the toolkit. By doing so, you provide assurance that you are implementing and adhering to strong data security and management practices. This ensures that all data is handled, utilised, and stored correctly, in compliance with NHS and regulatory guidelines.
To protect itself in the event of mishaps, the NHS must ensure that relevant due diligence questions are posed to its supply chain partners. CCG contracts require suppliers to the NHS to make DSP Toolkit submissions. Failure to submit satisfactory documentation may result in a breach of contractual obligations.
Organisations with robust Cyber Security and GDPR measures in place are better positioned to present a positive submission. We are here to assist you and your organisation in achieving this. Whether you are a GP surgery, Local Authority, NHS Business Partner, Charity, or Dentist, among others, we can provide the support you need.
What is the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT)
In 2018, the UK Department of Health and Social Care introduced the Data Security and Protection Toolkit with the aim of helping healthcare organizations showcase their dedication to safeguarding sensitive information. Acting as an assessment framework, the DSP Toolkit evaluates and enhances data security standards throughout the NHS and the broader healthcare sector. It replaces the former Information Governance Toolkit (IG Toolkit) and is founded upon ten data security standards established by the National Data Guardian.
