NHSX to consult on re-introduction of DSPT requirementNHSX to consult on re-introduction of DSPT requirement

NHSX temporarily waived the requirement for social care providers to complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) before accessing NHSMail, due to the pandemic. Plans have now been announced to consult on re-commencing this requirement.

All social care providers using NHSMail must register with the DSPT (sign up and provide contact details) by 30 September 2020. Guidance on how to register will be issued on 14 August 2020.

NHSX will consult widely on when to require social care providers in England to gain DSPT compliance for NHSMail access, but it will not be before March 2021. 

In October 2020, NHSX will launch a programme of support for social care providers to help them comply with the 20/21 DSPT, including a refreshed DSPT.
