We have provided some of the headline information with respect to responsibilities here, but the entire document should be considered before using the application.  If you do not agree with any of the provisions within the EULA you should not login and please contact us with any concerns you may have.

Patient Confidential Data

RMSL are committed to ensuring patient confidentiality through appropriate data security measures in relation to this application.

Access to Personal Confidential Data (PCD) will only be allowed where there is 1) a strictly defined legitimate relationship OR 2) there is a legal gateway that allows it. At all times RMSL will have control of how this is determined.

However authorised organisations that access and use the applications are also data controllers and are responsible for ensuring that their staff 1) maintain patient confidentiality (where they have access to such data) or 2) the confidentiality of commercially sensitive data is maintained.

Those organisations have the responsibility for ensuring that only the appropriate staff can have access and have the final responsibility to ensure that all leavers have their account suspended/locked.

Adverse Incident Reporting and Clinical Safety Issues

Should you notice that information provided by the application is incorrect, has been corrupted or is excessive based on your access rights i.e. you have received patient data which you are not entitled to you must report this as an adverse incident (please see Contact Section about how to do this).

You should also make us aware of:

Any instance where you have entered incorrect data that could impact on patient care
Any instance where the use of the application has prevented or hindered the delivery of patient care
Any instance where use of the application has delayed patient care
You become aware of any real or potential clinical safety issue with your use of the system

Regulatory Compliance

The following must be complied with:

  • Your organisation MUST maintain compliance with the Data Security & Protection Toolkit across all requirements
  • Organisational Fair Processing Notices must be kept up to date and patients must be notified that their data is being transferred to RMSL who will process this as part of the contract between commissioners and Dental Practices
  • Your organisation is confirming that it is UK GDPR/Data Protection Act 2018 compliant
  • Staff and practices must maintain the confidentiality of their account and password by restricting access to their computer to prevent unauthorised access and ensure that they use their 2FA at all times.
  • Staff agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under their account or password and that such activities may be requested by legal authorities including the patient or their representative and the General Dental Council.
  • Staff shall take all necessary steps to ensure that their password is kept confidential and secure and shall inform RMSL as set out in the Contact section immediately if they have any reason to believe that their password has become known to anyone else, or if the password is being, or is likely to be, used in an unauthorised manner
  • Staff must not knowingly (or be encouraged to) use or share credentials unless such sharing is part of a practice or group-based login. In such circumstances users will have individual 2FA codes to identify their access to the service. Where such an incident occurs in an organisation that accesses PCD ALL users access may be suspended until assurances have been provided that appropriate action has been taken to resolve this matter

Please ensure that the details that you provide us with are correct and complete and inform us as set out in the Contact section immediately of any changes to information that you have provided us.
