According to CQC, all health and care organisations must assure themselves they are implementing the data security standards and meeting their statutory obligations on data protection and data security. This comes under well-led, key line of enquiry W6: “Is appropriate and accurate information being effectively processed, challenged and acted on?”

CQC inspectors will be interested in understanding how care providers assure themselves they are meeting their responsibilities to protect patient data. Providers must understand their obligations under GDPR and continue to work towards achieving and maintaining compliance.

Sapphire Consulting Group work closely with numerous care homes and care staff providers in helping them to complete the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) and thus ensure that they meet the requirements of the GDPR and the Data Protection Act.

Sapphire Consulting Group will help you by acting as your outsourced Data Protection Officer, which care homes are legally required to have due to the amount of special category data they process. We can also write specific data protection and GDPR compliant policies and provide staff training. We can provide further support to care home managers and staff by dealing with subject access requests and data breaches.

In essence, we will take care of your data so that you can take care of your clients.
