General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT GDPR (GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION) AND RESEARCH

From 25th May 2018, under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) NHS organisations will need to provide transparency information to people about the processing of their personal data.  Under GDPR, there is a strong emphasis on implementing safeguards for personal data for research. As such the amount of information that must be provided to research participants about how their personal data is processed for research purposes has increased under this new law.
