Data Security & Protection Toolkit: new PSNC guidance available

PSNC has published new guidance to help community pharmacy contractors to complete the 2021/22 Data Security and Protection Toolkit. The Toolkit is used to make a pharmacy’s information governance (IG) declaration and must be completed by 30th June 2022. However, PSNC recommended contractors complete the Toolkit as soon as possible.

PSNC has collaborated with NHS Digital to keep the workload associated with Toolkit completion manageable whilst maintaining the appropriate data security protections. Key differences in this year’s Toolkit include:

  • The ‘tool tips’ contain pharmacy specific information for the first time;
  • layout improvements;
  • new mandatory questions;
  • improvements to the question wording; and
  • the Toolkit now displays the answers submitted by the pharmacy in the previous submission for many questions, allowing contractors to simply confirm the information remains accurate and adjust this if necessary.
