January 28th 2024 is Data Privacy Day which reminds us that we must ensure personal data is processed with confidentiality & care.

The DSP Toolkit is now the social care sector’s accepted best practice method for care providers to evidence their data protection practices & demonstrate compliance to all.

It’s also the only way to inform the CQC during the inspection process that your care site has the necessary protections in place to meet the standards on Governance, Key questions and quality statements for a Well-led service.

For free support with your DSPT, please contact the DSPT Team via dataprotection@hcpa.co.uk or 01707 708 018

HCPA hosted a webinar on the 16th of January looking at Governance and Data Protection. Click here to view the slides from that webinar. These slides contain links to free Data Protection e-learning for the care sector, plus information on preparing for CQC.
