|East Sussex Fire and Rescue - Membership Available|
The East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service Care Providers Fire Safety Scheme has been created to improve fire safety in the homes of the people who are at most risk of being victims of fire. It builds upon their existing Home Safety Visit programme by engaging with organisations, public, private and charitable, to help identify people to whom ESFRS can direct its free of charge services.
Care providing organisations who become members of the scheme are participating in a partnership that will improve the safety and well being of their own clients. This partnership will be recognised by the provision of free of charge training and recognition of the organisations participation. Membership is an ideal way in which corporate social responsibility can be enhanced. The Scheme is entirely voluntary both in respect of members and clients. The Scheme is nonstatutory and therefore has no bearing on any other requirements that may or may not be applicable
to individual organisations who become members. Click here for the application

Data Protection - National Data Opt-Out Webinar
The national data opt-out gives everyone the ability to stop health and adult social care organisations from sharing their confidential patient information for reasons other than providing their individual care and treatment. It was introduced on 25 May 2018 in line with the National Data Guardian’s recommendations but it did not apply to social care. However, this is about to change.
All CQC registered adult social care providers in England must be compliant with this policy by 31 July 2022.

Publish your DSPT in your lunch hour
The deadline for publishing your 2021/22 DSPT is 30 June 2022, but we strongly advise you to start your review now to give you time to complete.
By completing your DSPT, you will provide evidence that you meet all of the minimum legislative requirements of the DPA and UK-GDPR as well as some cyber security best practice. Standards Met is the level that all care providers should be aiming for as it demonstrates that they also meet the health and social care data security standards.

Mental Capacity and Consent
Relevant information about people you support is already safely shared between doctors, nurses and other professionals and staff. Very soon, adult social care providers will also be able to access these records.
However, The Integrated Care Record is only provided to health and social care organisations that can comply with the relevant laws about data protection.
Attend this webinar and learn about mental capacity and consent.
