Data Sharing Audits

We carry out audits and where necessary follow-up visits to check that our customers are meeting the obligations in their Data Sharing Contracts and Data Sharing Agreements.

This helps to ensure that organisations abide by the terms and conditions we set and data is kept safe and secure. From April 2016, audit reports are being published on monthly basis and are scheduled to appear every third Thursday.

To assist the data recipient with the audit process NHS Digital has produced an Audit Guide and an Action Plan template. With the publication of the Audit Guide the style of our audit report was changed in October 2016.
