Better Security, Better Care Northwest Regional Summit 2024

Northwest Adult Social Care - Leading  Digitisation 

On January 23, 2024, the "Better Security, Better Care" Northwest stakeholder event in Leyland marked a significant milestone in the journey towards enhancing data security and protection in social care. The event, which focused on the importance and implementation of the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT), was a resounding success, attended by a diverse group of providers and commissioners.

This groundbreaking summit provided an in-depth look at the DSPT, exploring both the local and national perspectives. Participants shared valuable insights into initiating the DSPT journey, delving into the experiences of providers who have already embarked on this path. The discussions extended to the specific needs of commissioners and employers in the context of DSPT, highlighting the critical role of digital systems in the future of social care.

One of the event's highlights was the collaborative round-table discussions, fostering an environment of shared learning and strategic planning. These discussions not only illuminated the current state of cyber security in social care settings but also laid the groundwork for future collaborations and advancements in the field.

The event, which ran from 09:30 to 14:30, was not just a meeting of minds but a clarion call for the sector to get ahead of the regional DSPT completion benchmark. The enthusiasm and commitment displayed by the participants underscored the sector's dedication to safeguarding data and enhancing the lives of those who access care and support.

As we reflect on the success of this transformative summit, we extend our gratitude to all who attended and contributed to its success. The discussions and strategies formulated here are set to shape the future of data security in social care, ensuring better care through better security.
