We have detected that you are using Internet Explorer to visit this website. Internet Explorer is now being phased out by Microsoft. As a result, NHS Digital no longer supports any version of Internet Explorer for our web-based products, as it involves considerable extra effort and expense, which cannot be justified from public funds. Some features on this site will not work. You should use a modern browser such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. If you have difficulty installing or accessing a different browser, contact your IT support team.
NHS Digital business teams can use the Secure Electronic File Transfer (SEFT) to transfer data securely to and from any external organisation.
Secure Electronic File Transfer
Secure Electronic File Transfer (SEFT) works by providing a secure wrapper around any file, regardless of its size, structure or data content. SEFT provides data security during transmission (by using a 256-bit AES encryption mechanism). The data are held in secure containers at NHS Digital and only people who are authorised to process the data are allowed access.
SEFT can only be accessed by registered and approved users. We will invite relevant people to register for the service, and send you log-in details.
Alternatively, contact the SEFT team for more information.
