The DSPT replaced the NHS Information Governance Toolkit in 2018. All organisations that process NHS patient data must complete this by the end of March each year. DSPT is updated annually to reflect changes in data privacy legislation and national health policy. Completed evidence will  support inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) or the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).

Kaleidoscope provides practical support to ensure organisations are able to demonstrate compliance with the DSPT with a range of services including training and audit.
