Information Security Guidance
Patient information must be carried in bags which can be zipped closed and
carried over the shoulder or on the back.
Do not leave bags containing sensitive information in unsafe environments.
Where it is necessary to carry diaries minimise the level of sensitivity of patient
information contained within diaries. Where possible staff and services should:
Use patient initials instead of full names;
Limit the inclusion of clinical or social information.
Patient information should not be left unattended
