Upcoming deadline: Data Security and Protection Toolkit

Upcoming deadline: Data Security and Protection Toolkit

September 25, 2020

Whilst approximately three-quarters of pharmacies have already completed the Data Security and Protection Toolkit, those contractors who have not yet done so are reminded that this must be completed by 30th September 2020.

The deadline for completing the Toolkit, which is used to make a pharmacy’s information governance (IG) declaration, was extended from the usual 31st March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

PSNC worked closely with NHS Digital to keep the data security protections appropriate but the workload manageable particularly given the ongoing pandemic and relating work. In particular, the Toolkit will show the answers submitted by the pharmacy last year for many questions, allowing the contractor to simply check the information is still accurate and adjust if needed.

Comprehensive guidance from PSNC has been available to contractors since December.
