Re: Welcome...

But why does the monitoring service need names and addresses? Surely a unique ID which links to the staff details held centrally (and the badge ID) is all that's required?

^^ It doesn't but seeing as the unique ID would have to be agreed across NHS Wales, England and Scotland that's a problem, a lot of trusts a lot of boards and a lot of CCGs willing to share data. I agree it's logical but so is the supplier having better IT and information security procedures in place.

They need to track where people work as the radiation dose information has to move with them if they move employer, dangerous stuff radiation.
