DSPT Certificates now available

You can now download, print and share a DSPT Certificate showing you’ve reached Standards Met or Standards Exceeded.

Following feedback from care providers and the Better Security, Better Care programme, NHS Digital has introduced an official DSPT Certificate.

Care providers who reach Standards Met or Standards Exceeded can download the certificate which includes the standard they have reached, the year of their DSPT and the date they published. Certificates are available for the most recent year of publication, and only for 2021/22 or 2022/23.

The DSPT certificate is a quick and visual way to demonstrate your DSPT compliance.

Here are some tips on how to make the most of it:

  • Print your certificate and display it on your premises.
  • Upload it to your website.
  • Share it with people seeking care.
  • Use it as evidence where relevant for CQC, commissioners, NHS partners, bids, data suppliers etc.

Head offices can access the certificate within the Previous Publications section of their DSPT account. If you’re DSPT covers multiple sites, you will need to download and share the certificate with them.

We have also published a short guide on how to access and use your DSPT certificate.

Finally, if you’re planning to work on your DSPT over the Christmas period, you might want to come along to our webinar on 28 December, 11am – 12pm. Book here.
