You may have heard a little about the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) and be wondering what it's all about?

It can be confusing but in essence GDPR is a very good thing. It's the new law that protects you and your data, and it will be in effect from 25 May 2018.

In order for the Trust to provide you with high quality health care services we are required to collect and make use of your personal data. To support our clinical duties this data can sometimes be shared with relevant departments within the Trust, with other NHS organisations and authorities where required and, at times, it may also be used for training and auditing purposes.

We are committed to processing your personal data in accordance with the law and are fully GDPR compliant.

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust is the Data Controller for any personal information you provide, if required, the Trust can provide you with information about why your personal data is being processed, how long the Trust will keep it for, who it may be shared with, information about your rights as well as who to contact if you have any queries or concerns.
