Paget achieves ISO27001 accreditation

17 May 2022


In the latest milestone on its journey towards implementing comprehensive, integrated digital health across its hospital sites, James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has achieved ISO27001 accreditation, the internationally recognised standard for information security.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the standard for the Information Security Management System, and demonstrates that the Trust has aligned and is operating its information security management system to agreed best practises.

Jonathan Reddington, Head of Digital Services at the James Paget, said: “Achieving ISO27001 shows how the Trust has embedded information security into all elements of operation across the hospital, how we are all committed to continually improving and striving for excellence in this space.

“It is important to recognise the hard work of the Digital Health team at the Trust over the last two years in developing and implementing this approach to managing information security, both to achieve this accreditation and as part of our overall approach to completing our Data Security Protection Toolkit response.”

ISO 27001 certification demonstrates to patients and organisations that JPUH is committed to excellence in the realm of data handling and security.

Mark Flynn, Director of Strategic Projects at the Trust, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for the Trust, during a period of unprecedented additional demand on all digital services at our hospital.

“The team’s focus and partnership work with NHS Digital and other local NHS Trusts has set the standard for the Trust’s approach towards further digital maturity over the coming years, particularly as we develop our plans for a New Hospital for the James Paget in the future.”
