Data Security Induction


In order to access NSHD data, a security induction must be completed. This is to ensure that recipients understand the principles of secure data management and are aware of current legislation in this area.

The induction consists of undertaking the NHS Data Security Awareness Level 1 e-learning course and successfully completing the accompanying assessment.

Users will need to register for an e-LfH learning account with their academic email address if they are not already registered.

Once the assessment has been passed, please send us a scanned copy of the completion certificate or a screen shot of your activity log or assessment score (see example below) to confirm this.

If you have already completed the Data Security Awareness training module (or an equivalent) in the past 12 months, please scan and send the certificate of completion.
