(GDPR) The General Data Protection Regulation


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Coming into force on 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK data protection legislation that will accompany it represent an overhaul of data protection legislation and all organisations, including community pharmacy businesses, will need to take steps to ensure that they comply with it. PSNC, with other stakeholders, has worked to develop a range of guidance and resources to help pharmacy contractors to comply with the new legislation.
