GDPR

What GDPR will mean for patients

The GDPR sets out the key principles about processing personal data, for staff or patients;

  • data must be processed lawfully, fairly and transparently
  • it must be collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes
  • it must be limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed
  • information must be accurate and kept up to date
  • data must be held securely
  • it can be retained for as long as it is necessary for the reasons it was collected

There are also stronger rights for patients regarding the information that practices hold about them.

  • being informed about their data is used
  • patients to have access to their own data
  • patients can ask to have incorrect information changed
  • restrict how their data is used
  • move their patient data from one health care organisation to another
  • the right to object to their patient information being processed (in certain circumstances)
