Data protection is changing!

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect on the 25th of May 2018. This will require pharmacy contractors to make sure that they are processing personal information securely and in accordance with new laws. Don’t panic though – it’s not as scary as it seems! With the help of the UK Community Pharmacy GDPR Working Party, we are producing a GDPR pack for contractors which will make compliance as easy as possible, and we will make this available in the first week of April.

The pack will be in three parts:

  • Guidance and background information
  • A workbook
  • FAQs

Completing the workbook in full will help you demonstrate ongoing GDPR compliance, and you will be able to tackle the work in manageable chunks in preparation for the 25th of May. Look out for the pack being launched on our website soon!
