Pharmacies Providing a Care Home Service GDPR
CPH has been asked to remind all pharmacy contractors that provide a service to care homes that they must abide by General Data Protection Regulation rules. This includes ensuring that all communications that have any patient identifiable information are sent through secure means such as email.
All care homes now have nhs.net emails that community pharmacies can use to communicate in a secure manner using your own nhs.net email addresses. If you are not using a secure nhs.net email to communicate with the home please ask the care home to supply you with their secure nhs.net email to ensure all communication remains secure.
