DSPT – Data Security and Protection Toolkit

Better Security, Better Care.

Support Available to help you complete the Data Security Protection Toolkit

The Data Security Protection Toolkit (DSPT) is an online data protection assessment.

It is a compulsory requirement to successfully complete the DSPT if you have an NHS Mail Account, you have access to any NHS digital records or you contract with the NHS. During the COVID-19 outbreak, the NHS temporarily waived this requirement. However, this waiver will come to an end on the 30 June 2021.
A new version of the Toolkit was released on the 1 December 2020.

All CQC registered care providers will need to complete this data protection assessment (regardless of whether or not you have an existing NHS Mail Account).

Some of you are already familiar with the DSPT, but all Care Providers need to take action (even if you have made a DSPT submission in the last 12 months). The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Registered Managers Network, supported by Peterborough and Cambridgeshire Care Association is part of a national program to assist care providers with this.

Please register your details below to express an interest in us supporting you to complete this. We will then book you on the next available webinar with our trainers.
