Departmental Records

Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he plans to establish mystaffspace, as referred to on page 71 of High Quality Care for All, Cm 7432; what the cost of establishing mystaffspace will be; what assessment he has made of the effect on the confidentiality of staff records of establishing mystaffspace; and if he will make a statement. (221057)

Precise implementation timing and cost details associated with mystaffspace will be established in line with the experience of and lessons from developing the prototype. A programme is now being initiated and planning will include the business case, and the development and implementation plans that expect a staged roll-out over the next two years.

The security controls and safeguards to prevent unrestricted or uncontrolled access, via mystaffspace, to personal staff records will be at least as secure as those systems to which it might provide access.
