North Staffs LMC Data Privacy Notice

The BMA: GPs as data controllers under the GDPR

Dr Paul Cundy, GPC IT Policy Lead, has published a series of blogs on a dropbox  on the General Data Protection Regulation. This mode has been chosen because it allows all the comments to be "live" and updateable and this is a rapidly changing field with ongoing national changes and legal requirements, many of which haven't yet been fully published. Therefore we have removed the old documents from our website to ensure you only access the latest advice. 

Please note that due to IT restrictions, practices will not be able to access the dropbox from their practice computer (despite requests from the LMC to HIS).  However, the link can be accessed from a personal computer which is not networked to HIS. You could then email them to yourself for application.

Dr Paul Cundy says the following about the blogs.  "They are a narrative in nature and attempt to cover the questions (he) sees surfacing on the various email lists and other media. Their status should be of informed opinion. Facts are referred to as facts and opinions clearly identified and (he) hopes justified".

The UK Caldicott Guardian Council has produced this webpage with further information and guidance too.
