If you have completed the DSPT to ENTRY LEVEL in the last 12 months you need to take the following action:

 

Must read: The Entry Level DSPT standard was withdrawn on the 1 March 2021 and replaced by a new 'Approaching Standards' level. Approaching Standards requires more work than Entry Level. We recommend that all Care Providers currently at Entry Level work towards completing the DSPT to Standards Met, particularly if you have an NHS Mail account.

 

Must read: You have until the 30 June 2021 to do this. The DSPT Toolkit was updated on the 1 December and many questions have either been removed, rewitten or simplified.  We are here to support you with this.

 

What do I need to do next?

As previously mentioned you will be required to complete the DSPT to Standards Met within the next 6 months.

 

The DSPT has been criticised as being too technical and difficult to understand, so many of the questions have been simplified or updated to reflect the world we work in at the moment (eg using more mobile devices) or have been removed all together.

 

As you have aleady completed the DSPT to Entry Level, you have already done most of the hard work. There is a program of support to help you.

 

What if I do need more help?

Our online resources will probably be enough for you to successfully complete the DSPT to Standards Met with mimimal effort.
