General Data Protection (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation that comes into force on 25 May 2018. The GDPR will, along with a new Data Protection Act (currently in draft), replace existing data protection legislation including the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

The GDPR applies to all individuals and organisations with day-to-day responsibilities for data protection. It therefore applies to GP practices, as ‘data controllers’, and their clinicians and administrative staff.
