Keeping information secure and confidential

7. Keeping information secure and confidential

All our staff have contractual obligations of confidentiality, enforceable through disciplinary procedures. All staff will receive appropriate training on confidentiality of information and staff (who because of their role) have regular access to personal information will have received additional specialist training.

We take relevant organisational and technical measures to ensure the information we hold is secure – such as holding information in secure locations, restricting access to information to authorised personnel, protecting personal and confidential information held on equipment such as laptops with encryption.

Each NHS organisation has a senior person responsible for protecting the confidentiality of patient information and enabling appropriate information sharing. This person is called the Caldicott Guardian – the Sheffield CCG Caldicott Guardian is Dr Andrew McGinty.
