Please find below our Practice Policies relating to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the 2018 Data Protection Act which protects the personal data of our patients and staff.
What is personal data?
- The key terms
- GDPR and other data protection laws rely on the term 'personal data' to discuss information about individuals. There are two key types of personal data in the UK and they cover different categories of information.
- What is personal data?
- Personal data can be anything that allows a living person to be directly or indirectly identified. This may be a name, an address, or even an IP address. It includes automated personal data and can also encompass pseudonymised data if a person can be identified from it.
- So, what's sensitive personal data?
- GDPR calls sensitive personal data as being in 'special categories' of information. These include trade union membership, religious beliefs, political opinions, racial information, and sexual orientation.
