Data must not be stored on personal laptops or external hard drives/USBs. Please only store study data on secure hospital servers or internal non-mobile hospital computers, if data transfer is required encryption and a suitably secure service must be used.
Specific approval is required to take any individual level patient data off hospital premises, and data must be rendered non-identifiable.
