The background to the UK GDPR was that in May 2018, GDPR replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way in which organisations across the region approach data privacy.
Post-Brexit, in January 2021, the GDPR became formally known as UK GDPR and was incorporated within the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA18) at Chapter 2.
In accordance with the UK GDPR, Cranbrook Medical Practice will ensure that information provided to subjects about how their data is processed will be:
• concise, transparent, intelligible, and easily accessible,
• written in clear and plain language, particularly if addressed to a child, and
• free of charge.
The Data Protection Act (DPA18) will ensure continuity by putting in place the same data protection regime in UK law pre, and post, Brexit. This means ensuring that your personal confidential data (PCD) is handled in ways that are safe, transparent and what you would reasonably expect. Please find documents and links below:
