Patient leaflet on medical records security and confidentiality

This guidance has been developed by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and the Department for Health (DH) as the result of a joint project.

The Institute writes: ‘To help people understand how to keep their records safe including advice on sharing electronic health and care records, creating a strong password and keeping it secure, and developing good habits online to protect your information on your computer or mobile, we have published a new guidance leaflet for the public.
