Confidentiality & GDPR

What is GDPR?

The General Date Protection Regulations (GDPR) is European Union (EU) legislation that is applicable from 25 May 2018. It is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU. It replaces the Data Protection Act 1998

GDPR requires practices to process data ‘fairly’ and in a ‘transparent manner’ which is ‘easily accessible and easy to understand’. This means that practices must provide information to patients about how the practice processes patient data.
