Get ready to stop faxing patient information
The Department of Health is urging all Health and Social Services to stop using fax machines to transmit patient information.
We need all staff to think: Is there a safer way to do this?
The deadline for stopping faxing is 1 October 2016.
Please review when, and why you are using faxing to transmit patient information and put in place alternate, more secure methods. Further information and support can be found on MyDCHS.
