General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and GPs

Data protection regulations changed for GPs on May 25 2018 with the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Here is the ICGP Guideline document on data protection regulation. To learn more about the working group please click here.

The Guideline is made up of three parts: the principles of data protection, frequently asked questions and appendices that provide forms and templates for use in the practice. The whole Guideline document is available as a PDF and the Appendices section is also available as a Word document.

As experience of the implementation of GDPR unfolds and new legislation and guidelines become available the document will be reviewed and updated. You should always check you have the most recent version, by visiting http://www.icgp.ie/data.
