Data and COVID-19

We have published information on how we're using data to inform the response to COVID-19 via this blog post and on this page, which will be regularly kept updated with examples.

As the health and social care system will continue to face significant pressures in the coming months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NHSX and NHS Digital have taken the decision to extend the final date for submission of the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT) to 30 September 2020 and the compliance deadline for the national data opt-out to 31st March 2021.

In addition, we've produced specific IG guidance for COVID-19, including an example supplementary privacy notice to cover the COVID-19 emergency period.  This and other guidance relating to IG is available here.
