Protecting and managing personal data


16 / 05 / 2016

The new EU Regulation on data privacy was adopted on 27 April 2016 and must be implemented across EU member states by 25 May 2018.

The Regulation strengthens the principles of data protection by putting more focus on accountability and security. Health and care organisations need to be prepared for some new requirements which are highlighted in our briefing.

It is important that NHS hospitals and healthcare organisations understand the new Regulation, as every organisation which handles personal data will now be obliged not only to comply with the new law, but will also have to demonstrate they have complied.
