Encouraging care homes to join NHSmail

NHSmail gives staff in care homes the ability to securely share residents’ data and queries with doctors, nurses and GPs in the NHS.

We want as many care homes as possible to get NHSmail. The process is simple:

  1. Submit an entry level Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT)
  2. Note the Care Quality Submission location ID and contact ID
  3. Join NHSmail in one of three ways

This page has resources you can use to encourage care homes to sign up to NHSmail.
