Security of NHS patient data shared for research purposes (11/08/2008)
The importance of effective information security has been highlighted in
recent months through well publicised data handling failures in a range of
different UK organisational settings. The
Cabinet Office has completed a review of public sector data handling and has
established a comprehensive range of minimum security standards. Consequently,
NHS guidance for the protection of patient information has been extended and
strengthened in order to respond robustly to these requirements.
