All non NHS organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems must use this toolkit to provide assurance that they are practicing good data security and that personal information is handled correctly. This system is subject to ongoing development and underlines our commitment to IT Security when managing patient records and sensitive confidential data. We understand the importance and need for client confidentiality and General Data Protection Regulations and take our commitments very seriously.
