Digital Social Care has been working with the Local Government Association, NHS Digital and NHSX on how to help care providers keep information safe.


We know that while meeting the challenges of COVID-19, care providers have never been busier, and that data and cyber security may not seem an immediate priority for you. However, the risks are still out there, and I would encourage all providers to look carefully at this topic when they are able to. We hope that the information and guidance we publish will help you to do so.

“And if you only have time to do one thing right now, please join the Digital Social Care newsletter and we will make sure you are kept updated as we move forward over the next few months. Thank you!”

Ian Turner, on behalf of Digital Social Care and the Care Provider Alliance.
