Support for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) Oxfordshire

DSPT Support and Guidance – Useful Links

Working Together in Partnership: Oxfordshire, Berkshire & Buckinghamshire

Our program of local support will focus on the needs of smaller and medium sized care providers and will mainly be for services that are registered with CQC. This will be launching very soon in 2021. The program will include, webinars, interactive online workshops, and some 1:1 support for care providers who need the most assistance. This will be available to Care Providers within Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.

Getting Started – Free Webinars

The impact of COVID-19 has meant more reliance on technology, and in this digital age it’s vital that people’s information is kept secure. Have you assessed how safe your confidential information is? Are you clear on good practice to keep both paper and digital records secure? Join these free webinars to help you think about what you need to do to protect your organisation’s confidential information.

These webinars are for providers of adult social care in England. They will help your organisation prepare for registering on, and completing, the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT). No technical knowledge is needed.

These webinars are provided by the Institute of Public Care (IPC), part of Oxford Brookes University, on behalf of Digital Social Care and as part of a national support programme funded by NHSX called Better Security, Better Care.
