From May 2018 Europe’s data protection rules will undergo their biggest changes in decades. The amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has vastly increased. To simplify, the old regime was no longer fit for purpose. The solution is the mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into force on 25th May 2018 and become part of law. It will change how businesses and public-sector organisations can handle the information of patients and staff.
GDPR means that we at Seaton Surgery will be more accountable for handling of patients’ personal information and as such we have updated our data protection policies to reflect this.
