Please use this discussion to share your knowledge and opinions about Smartcards.
A representative from Connecting For Health, responsible for the implementation of the Smartcard, will join the discussion if necessary.
Here is some introductory information from CFH:
As an NHS Clinician you are likely to access some of the national NHS IT applications (including the Patient Demographic Service, Choose & Book, the Electronic Prescription Service and the Summary Care Record) whilst delivering the best possible care to your patients. It is therefore essential that you can access these applications securely and that any entries and/or amendments are auditable. This can be achieved through the use of your NHS smartcard and the correct allocation of role based access controls (RBAC). In the future access to certain GP IT systems (i.e. TPP SystmOne) will be dependant upon the insertion and validation of your smartcard.
