General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

 
Community pharmacy contractors should be aware that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect from 25th May 2018. The GDPR and the UK data protection legislation that will accompany it represent an overhaul of data protection legislation and all organisations, including community pharmacy businesses, will need to take steps to ensure that they comply with it.

As the requirements of GDPR are UK wide CPW are signposting contractors in Wales to the guidance hosted on the PSNC website  https://psnc.org.uk/contract-it/pharmacy-it/information-governance/the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/  The guidance has been produced by the GDPR working Group consisting of PSNC, NPA, CCA, AIM, CPPE, and RPS with input from CPW.
