What is GDPR?
GDPR is a new law that determines how your personal data is processed, kept safe and the legal rights that you have in relation to your own data. The regulation applies from 25 May 2018. GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 which the practice already complies with but strengthens many of it’s principle.
You can find more information on the further information tab under the heading 'GDPR'. We have all of this information displayed in the patient notice board in the practice. If you have any questions then please speak to the Practice Manager.
