Cyber security: confirmation of your trust's actions
After the recent cyber-attacks, we and NHS England have been working with NHS Digital’s CareCERT team to check that the NHS is protected against any further attacks.
We sent a template to NHS provider chief executives on 30 May, which set out 39 of the critical CareCERT advisories issued over the last three months. These have been deemed most critical in preventing successful cyber-attacks. The template will reflect which of the ‘advisories’ your organisation has acted on.
For enquiries regarding the collection template please contact your NHS Improvement relationship lead.
If you have a specific query regarding the technical implementation of the CareCERT advisories, please email email@example.com or call 08000 856653.

From NICE: interventional procedures programme
This programme assesses the safety and efficacy of interventional procedures to determine whether they work well and are safe enough for use in the NHS. The programme aims to protect the safety of patients and support clinicians, governance committees and providers to manage clinical innovation responsibly. This relies on effective engagement between NICE and the wider NHS via your medical directors or nominated deputies.
