General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Data Protection law is changing on 25 May 2018.

GDPR strengthens the obligations and accountability on organisations, like NHSGGC and EDC, handle personal data in a transparent and secure manner. Its fundamental principle however is to increase the rights individuals have over how organisations manage the personal information they hold about them.

GDPR introduces new rules that regulate how we handle and process the personal data that is entrusted to us.  NHSGGC & EDC have  a legal requirement to comply with the new Regulation. The overall purpose of the new regulation is to increase the rights individuals have over how organisations manage the personal information they hold about them. It also strengthens the obligations and accountability for organisations to handle personal data in a transparent and secure manner.
