EMIS Web, who provide our clinical computer system, are making changes to the way they store data and are moving to a more modern, cloud-based system.
With effect from 10th June 2019, EMIS will start storing data in a highly secure, third party cloud- hosted environment, namely Amazon Web Services (“AWS”).
The data will remain in the UK at all times and will be fully encrypted both in transit and at rest. In doing this, there will be no change to the control of access to our patient’s data and AWS will not have any access to the decryption keys. AWS is one of the world’s largest cloud companies, already supporting numerous public sector clients (including the NHS), and it offers the very highest levels of security and support.
Please see our Fair Processing and Privacy Notice here for more information about how we keep your data secure.
