This policy and guidance is being developed by the national GDPR working group, chaired by NHS England, for publication by the Information Governance Alliance (IGA).Those with senior responsibility for Information Governance can use the guidance to learn how to comply with the GDPR. This includes Caldicott Guardians, operational IG leads and managers, plus all employees.
The guidance will help organisations to make the changes needed due to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which will happen even though the UK is not an EU member state.
If you have any specific queries, please contact us and we will try and answer these as best possible. However, where it is not possible or the query best sits with another team or organisation we will let you know. We also recommend you contact the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) with enquiries.
- The ICO has produced a range of resources on its data protection reform website. GDPR guidance will continue to be published on this site.
