What is a NHS Smart Card?
smart cards and pass codes are similar to a chip and PIN credit or debit card, but are more secure, as there is no account information on the Smartcard and the passcode is more complex. A user's Smartcard is printed with their name, photograph and unique user identity number. The photograph is stored centrally, and is always available for an organisation to verify that the Smartcard holder is indeed the person to whom it was issued. All NHS healthcare staff know that it is a disciplinary offence to tamper with Smartcards, share passcodes, or use a Smartcard that doesn't belong to them, and that they may lose their jobs if they do so. Individuals are granted access to patient information based on their work and level of involvement in patient care. This means that, for example, someone working in an administrative role rather than a clinical one might only be able to see the demographic information needed to process an appointment, not the full clinical record.
