P_IG_06 Smartcard and Identity Card (ID) Policy
A Smartcard is a security device incorporating chip and PIN security which permits an authorised user to gain access according to their requirements. This is based upon the person's organisation/s, job role/s, areas of work and business functions/activities. Smartcards are primarily used for access to spine connected clinical systems, for example Choose & Book, SystmOne, PDS (Patient Demographic Service).
All staff will require a smartcard for access to the Electronic Staff Record (ESR); this will give staff access to online mandatory training and enable them to view/update their staff details.
