Data Security and Protection Toolkit Workshop now on-demand


Community pharmacy contractors can now access a recording of PSNC’s recent online workshop about the Data Security and Protection Toolkit.

Around 500 people registered for this week’s workshop which provided contractors with support in using the Toolkit to complete their 2021/22 return.

During the webinar, representatives from PSNC and NHS Digital provided guidance on completing the Toolkit, gave a demonstration of how to use and navigate the Toolkit, and answered viewers’ questions on how to make the data security declaration.

With contractors required to finalise their pharmacy’s Data Security and Protection Toolkit submission by 30th June 2022, this webinar provides the perfect opportunity to make good headway in its completion.
