Better Security, Better Care (DSPT)  

The Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is a really helpful annual self-assessment for health and care organisations. As a care provider, it shows you what you need to do to keep people’s information safe, and to protect your business from the risk of a data breach or a cyber-attack. It covers both paper and digital records, and it reassures everyone you work with that you are taking data security seriously.

All CQC-registered care providers should complete the DSPT at least once a year.  

Further information and guidance notes are available via the following link:
