HomeLink Healthcare renews important cyber security standard, Cyber Essentials Plus

Company news Quality & governance, Awards & accreditations 20th Mar 2023

We understand the importance of protecting our IT systems from cyber-attack and are committed to securing our systems in line with the National Cyber Security Centre’s guidelines.

We have taken steps to guard against the most common cyber-security threats including:

  • Securing connectivity
  • Ensuring our devices and software remain secure
  • Controlling access to data and services
  • Protecting systems from viruses and other malware
  • Keeping our devices and software up to date

Ensuring our devices and software remain secure

To demonstrate our commitment to this, we are proud to announce our certification in Cyber Essentials Plus. This means our Cyber Security measures have been independently verified by security experts and recognised by the IASME certification body.

“Acute trusts don’t have the resource, infrastructure, we don’t have the ability set up a new service. We struggle to attract a flexible workforce. Our bank is saturated, we have the wrong skillset, and pressure points like winter, half term, school holidays. With HomeLink I am buying a service and they always deliver.”  

NHS partner feedback

“It means we have a trusted and experienced team supporting our elective patient pathway – this provides real peace of mind and their willingness to diversify and respond so quickly really has saved us from having to cancel operations so thank you HomeLink for stepping in and stepping up.”

Cursty Pepper, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

“I’ve worked with a lot of providers and HomeLink Healthcare is a very professional organisation. Every member of my team has said how respectful and courteous the staff are. It has been a pleasure to work with partners who do exactly what they say they will.”

Jenny Ricketts, Director of Community Transformation, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

“HomeLink Healthcare liaise wit me regularly about patients that I have referred to them and are very prompt in their reply to questions or queries. Having them on board is a breath of fresh air.

Adeola Telesford, Highly Specialist Rehabilitation OT, Enabling Care Services, Lewisham

“We recognised we had a window of opportunity to put something in place that would support both our front-line teams and our patients without delaying discharges from our busy acute hospital sites. We achieved a safe, responsive and flexible service which meant patients received the ongoing support they needed.

Kelly Hudson, Associate Director for Urgent & Emergency Care Improvement, SE London CCG
