5 What is Information governance?
All and anything to do with information Data Protection Act Freedom of Information Caldicott (1 and 2) Human Rights Records Management Information Security Data Quality

6 Data Protection Act 1998 European Legislation 8 principles
Covers Personal Data and Sensitive Data Test! Define Personal Data Define Sensitive Data Gives rights to individuals (Data Subjects) Responsibility is personal

7 First Principle “Personal Data shall be processed fairly and lawfully”
Fair processing notices No surprises Access to personal data must be restricted and appropriate

8 If you get it wrong A member of staff working in a GP practice illegally looked at the records of more than a thousand patients. As a result he was fined for a breach of the Data Protection Act. Total fine over £1000 The Information Commissioner has fined an ex GP's receptionist for accessing a patients notes. The receptionist from a practice in Hampshire looked up details of her ex husbands new wife on a number of occasions. Total fine over £1100 NHS England (formally the NHS Commissioning Board) are having to pay a £200,000 fine because NHS Surrey (whose services have moved to NHS England) failed to ensure that PCs they arranged to be "cleaned" by a third party were being sold on still containing patient identifiable information. An ex-employee of University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has been convicted of computer misuse after inappropriately accessing patient records. They received a six-month custodial sentence.

9 Caldicott 1 and 2 Caldicott review 1997 Caldicott “2” 2013
Reviewed use of and access to patient records Established the role of the Caldicott Guardian Original 6 principles Caldicott “2” 2013 Clarified the H&SCA 2012 in relation to PCD Tasked NHS England and the HSCIC with providing more guidance and clarity 26 recommendations – all accepted by the department of Health Added a 7th principle Let’s look at Caldicott In 1997 Dame Fiona Caldicott asked to look at how the NHS manages patient information. Several recommendations including the appointment of Caldicott Guardians. Also the original 6 principles Caldicott 2 started in 2012 but reported in 2013. Dismayed at the state of patient confidential in the NHS. Further 26 recommendations which the DH have agreed to. A lot of these put the onus on HSCIC and NHS England to put some rules and regulations in place. Biggie for CCGs is that it reinforced what was actually already the case that CCGs cannot process personal confidential data. Added the 7th principle. And slightly changed the original 6, mainly changing the reference to PCD.

10 Caldicott Principles Justify the purpose
Don’t use patient confidential data (PCD) unless it is absolutely necessary Use the minimum that is necessary Access to PCD should be on a strict need to know basis Everyone with access to PCD should be aware of their responsibilities Comply with the Law The duty to share information can be as important as the duty to protect patient confidentiality Main change apart from adding the 7th principle is that reference is now to PCD where before it simply referred to personal information.

11 Information Security Principle 7 of the Data Protection Act
Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal data.

12 Information Security Password Controls Policies Locked cabinets
“Hidden” VDU screens Secure

13 Passwords Passwords are like underpants. They should be changed regularly, they are best kept hidden, and they shouldn’t be shared. So what about passwords? Talk about two main reasons for passwords. Security only giving access to stuff you are allowed to see. And Audit it is done under your login so you did it!!!!

15 To save or not to save?

16 Data Disclosure Could be a criminal offence Easily Done
Normally done by accident


18 Monitors – easy for a patient to lean over and see what is on the screen – which might not be about them.

19 Whilst providing a quick way to call a patient in, it does tell everyone else in the waiting room the name of another patient.

20 Unattended notes – I have seen practices where although the door to the filing room was locked the window to the outside world was left wide open!! In this case someone working in the filing room, gets hot, opens the window, goes for a cup of tea later doesn’t shut the window……….

21 Curtains contrary to what you may have heard are not soundproof!!
More of a problem in hospital but shutting the curtains does not stop everyone else from hearing your discussion.

22 Secure e-mail

23 Summary Care Record Populate a central register of all patients
Summary only (although enhanced data may be uploaded later) Available to all clinicians Primary use of data (for direct patient care) Patients can opt-out

Populate a central record of all patients Contains full patient records (read coded items) Data is anonymised or pseudonymised within the HSCIC Links primary care to secondary care data Collection of data is given legal basis under the H&SCA Data is for secondary use (i.e. not direct patient care) GPs and Patients DO NOT have a legal right to opt out And the dreaded As you will now be aware the HSCIC have agreed to defer the collection of data until the Autumn to enable them to make more information available to clarify their obligations and patients rights around sharing (or not) their data. Did you all get your leaflet by the way? No legal right to opt out under DPA as the collection of data is mandated under the H&SCA 2012. The secretary of state for health has however given patients an opt out.
