ICGP Publish GDPR Guidelines

The ICGP have now published their GDPR Guidelines. The Guidelines are 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.You can access all three parts at http://www.icgp.ie/data. We recommend that you download, read and use this documentation to assist you on your journey to GDPR compliance.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive. The GDPR represents one of the most challenging and evolving areas of law facing businesses today. There will now be strict, enforceable obligations governing how practices process the personal data of their patients.
