Awareness

Ensure that everyone in your practice is aware that data protection requirements are changing and what is needed to comply with these changes (see Data Protection, Confidentiality and Information Security Policy May 2018 template (Word)).

  Review your practice risk management processes and record the outcome of this.

  • Policies and procedures within the practice may need to be updated to reflect the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and you should ensure that staff are aware of and implement these changes.
