Secure Online Communications - Edinburgh Dental Specialists

We are pleased to announce the introduction of secure e-messaging facilities on our practice website. It is particularly important that we have the very latest secure communications in place to ensure that all sensitive patient identifiable information (PII) transferred online through our website is data protected. We are one of the first dental practices in the UK to introduce encrypted data protection services.

Our Valident (www.valident.co.uk) secure service templates (Patient Referrals, CT Scanning and Business E-mail) ensure that all data transfers from our website are sent fully encrypted via an ISO 27001 hosting facility in the UK. Only our practice Data Processor can decipher these messages and transfer them securely to our internal database using a Safe Key Password.

New Professional Standards being prepared by the GDC will become effective from September 2013 and they include the need to encrypt all confidential information sent electronically.

We are delighted to be able to offer our referring practitioners and their patients the very latest secure communications that comply with the DPA and GDC Regulations.
