Will organisations applying for NHSmail have to complete the DSPT first?

Any organisation seeking to register for NHSmail for the first time after 30 June 2021 needs to be published at Approaching Standards or above.

Where organisations currently use NHSmail and have not published a Toolkit submission there are no current plans to remove access to NHSmail. Any changes to this will be clearly flagged well in advance. The best way to ensure ongoing access to NHSmail is to complete the DSPT to at least Approaching Standards.
