During the COVID 19 response, NHS Digital had issued NHS mail accounts and waived the requirement for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) self-assessment until 30th June 2021. The deadline has now passed and most optometric practices and locum performers will have completed the toolkit where these were issued to practices or individual locums.
If you have been issued an NHS mail account in the last 12 months and not yet completed the DSPT self-assessment, please see the links below in order to retain the NHS mail account:
