Information Governance and Accreditations


We take our duty to protect personal information and confidentiality very seriously and, as such, hold a number of accreditations and registrations.

In addition, working with ETHOS Consulting, our PDH Platform has been confirmed as meeting clinical risk management standard DCB0129 which is designed to help manufacturers of IT software evidence the clinical safety of their products. DCB 0129 is published under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

We are also DTAC compliant.

Secure UK based hosting

The PDH Platform is hosted within The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN), the data network for health and care organisations that replaced N3.

HSCN provides the underlying network arrangements to help integrate and transform health and social care services, information to be accessed and shared more reliably, flexibly and efficiently.
