Why is this online GDPR for Health and Social Care training course essential?

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018, extending the rights of individuals regarding the collection and processing of their personal data.

Health and social care organisations are subject to stricter guidelines on the collection, processing and storage of individuals’ data. The penalty for non-compliance with the GDPR is significantly increased from the powers given to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) under the DPA (Data Protection Act 1998).

It is essential for health and social care workers to understand their responsibilities about GDPR fully.
