Winter Plan - Sign up for Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT)Winter Plan - Sign up for Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT)

UKHCA is encouraging all members to register with the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) by 30th September 2020.  If you have already registered on the DSPT, you do not need to do anything. If you are not CQC-registered, you do not have to complete the DSPT but may choose to do so as good practice.

Although not mandatory, CQC expects registered care providers in England to register with DSPT. The government has also asked providers to engage with the DSPT as part of the Winter Plan for adult social care.

You can sign up to the DSPT using this link. NHSX DSPT

If you need advice on signing up to the DSPT, you can contact the NHSX Information Governance team on 

More information and guidance is available from Digital Social Care who provide advice and support to the care sector on technology and data protection.

Digital Social Care is a partnership project between members of the Skills for Care and NHS Digital and the Care Provider Alliance of which UKHCA is a member.
