Job Description

About Digital Social Care

Digital technology helps care services spend more time caring. It helps the people we support keep control of their lives, and of their care. And in recent months, the need for information to be shared securely and efficiently between health and care services has become even more apparent. But there can be risks – for example how information is kept safe and secure, and what happens if a digital system fails.

This is a shared role across Digital Social Care (DSC) and Better Security, Better Care (BSBC).

DSC is run by social care providers for social care providers. It is a dedicated platform for providing advice and support to the sector on technology and data protection. BSBC is a support programme to help adult social care providers to store and share information safely through the Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT). The DSPT is a free, online self-assessment for health and care providers to evaluate and improve their data and cyber security.

The BSBC programme supports the sector with resources hosted on DSC and assistance provided by local partners to help care providers complete the DSPT. It’s an ambitious programme which aims to have all Care Quality Comission-registered adult social care services completing the DSPT at least once a year. The programme is delivered by a diverse group of care sector organisations, including many local care associations, with colleagues from the NHS, the Association of Directors of Social Services and local councils also involved.
