The SDHS is governed by a security policy that is reviewed annually each February. It is then presented to the Council of the School for approval, before being submitted as part of our NHS Information Governance Toolkit (IGT) application.
During the year we receive numerous requests to add novel functionality to the SDHS, such as new online data sources, or to allow printing or emailing. Anyone wishing to request should review the CSCS guidance on SDHS: external resource exceptions. All requests will be risk-assessed by CSCS and the IGO. Requests that are permitted are revisited at the annual review, and if they are kept then they are officially added to the Security Policy.
The current security policy can be found here: SDHS Security Policy March 2017 – February 2018
