    Data Protection Assurance to NHS 6th Jan 18 at 11:15 AM
    Thought you might like this little tit bit - IGT Stands for Information Governance Toolkit

    It remains Department of Health policy that all bodies that process NHS patient information for whatever purpose should provide assurance via the IGT.

    https://www.igt.hscic.gov.uk/about.aspx

    You are also able to search the website to see if a company has provided the assurance

    https://www.igt.hscic.gov.uk/ReportsOrganisationChooser.aspx?tk=431044489257195 &lnv=3&cb=00114d9a-fb0e-4ccf-a4d0-24be8c5179b6&reptypeid=1

    So for example Parking Eye have registered but never done it - another oversight, bit like planning permission.

    NHS bodies are also well within their rights see to the assurance. What they have in place.

    I leave you to think up your own FoI requests. Such as what action has the Trust taken to verify that has complied with DH Policy & have they validated the evidence to support the assurance

    Parking companies already provide something similar to the DVLA each year. You can see one here

    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    The NHS standards for handling information are way higher. these are supposed to apply to any company handling patient information for whatever purpose.


    DVLA don't really care who they give our information so long as they get their money


    The NHS can ask tell us / show us how you keep your information secure P Lie or any of the other requirements
