Some Boards operate a system called Fairwarning, which is a monitoring system that detects potential instances of unauthorised access to patient information held within electronic information systems.

If you are allocated to a Placement Board where Fairwarning is implemented, and the system detects you have accessed clinical or patient records outwith your legitimate duties, this will be investigated and you could face disciplinary action.

A leaflet with further information on fairwarning can be found here.
