Data Security Protection for adult social care providers

The Liverpool Social Care Partnership (LSCP) has been commissioned to help local adult social care providers evaluate and improve their data and cyber security in line with CQC and NHS guidance.

If you are a social care provider, you know how important it is to have access to good information about the people you support and also about your staff. In order to store and share that information safely, you need to be confident that your paper and digital records are secure.

The LSCP has been awarded a grant by NHSx to support local care providers on their data security journey as part of the national Better Security, Better Care programme.

The LSCP’s main focus is to help you to understand the importance of data and cybersecurity, and complete an annual, online self-assessment using the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT). The programme will help you to evaluate and improve your data and cybersecurity.

This means you can reassure the people you support and their families, your staff, commissioners, regulators, and health and care partners, that you are following good practice – and meeting legal and regulatory requirements.

For more information, please visit the LSCP website for full details including webinars and training or ring them on 0151 270 1703.
