Care Identity Service
Find forms, guidance leaflets, and the latest news and updates related to the Care Identity Service.
Registration authorities use the Care Identity Service to control NHS smartcard access for the NHS Spine's 800,000+ smartcard users. It’s a unified application that provides a single location for all registration authority activities.
These Care Identity Service forms are a post go-live contingency process for Registration Authority (RA) staff in the event of CIS not being used. RA staff will need to enter the information from the forms in CIS.
