How to Register on the DSPT

A single site organisation, is a care provider that operates from one location. This includes organisations such as home care services operating out of one office, as well as a stand-alone care homes.

Single site organisations will have both an HQ (parent) ODS code and a site ODS (child) code. You can use either code to register for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit. Using the HQ code allows your business to expand/acquire new branches and add them to the same Data Security and Protection Toolkit submission in the future.

If you are applying for NHSmail via the National Administration Service (NAS) you must use your site code (V****).

You can look up your ODS code by following our advice on How to find your ODS code. You can look up how to register on our Registering for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit page.

Once you have registered, you can complete the DSPT. See guidance below, and access free, expert support from your local Better Security, Better Care support partner.
