These guides, tools and films will help you to complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit and publish at Standards Met.

You may feel confident completing the DSPT yourself, but you can also access free support from the Better Security, Better Care programme. We have teams of Local Support Partners across England providing direct support and advice.

Guidance on How to Complete to Standards Met: We’ve written a guide on how to complete Standards Met. It also explains what you need to do for each evidence item.

Guidance on How to Complete to Standards Met for the First Time: If you are completing Standards Met and have never published on the Toolkit before, we have a different guide book on what to do.

Standards Met Workbook:  NHS South West London CCG has written a workbook to assist small and medium-sized care providers with completing Standards Met. This workbook can be used by trainers who are working to support care providers or by individual care provider organisations. If you would like a Powerpoint copy of the workbook, please contact hello@digitalsocialcare.co.uk.

Video guides: These short but detailed guides cover all of the data security standards and questions within the toolkit, and will be particularly useful for care providers who are completing the toolkit on their own.

Template policies and resources: We have written template policies and guidance materials to help you complete the DSPT. All of these are free to use and completely editable.

Webinar recordings:  These cover how to complete the DSPT, including how to register.

You can now publish your DSPT. See guidance below.
