General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, Europe-wide law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. It is part of the wider package of reform to the data protection landscape that includes the Data Protection Bill. The GDPR sets out requirements for how organisations need to handle personal data from 25 May 2018.
The GDPR was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe. The aim is to protect citizens from privacy and data breaches.The current Data Protection Act dates from the 1990s when organisations held much less data on individuals. As the amount of data held has increased and technology has advanced, so has the risk of data breaches. The GDPR aims to address gaps in previous legislation.The key principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 remain unchanged, but some areas of legislation have been strengthened.
Like the Data Protection Act 1998 , the GDPR applies to ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of data – a controller says how and why personal data is processed and the processor acts on the controller’s behalf. General Practices are data controllers. West London Medical Centre has always shown absolute commitment for data protection and will continue to do so by strictly adhering to new regulations.
