Lockdown of Protected URPs in ESR

The Smartcard enablement of core ESR users is a pre-requisite to the activation of the ESR interface to UIM / CIS. This will ensure that staff data is secured to the same level as patient data and ensure that ESR users have e-GIF Level 3 security clearance in order to effect changes on NHS CRS.

The Smartcard enablement of core ESR users is complete for the vast majority NHS Organisations in England and the NHS ESR Data Team continues to work with those organisations that have not yet completed the transition.
