As you may be aware, new data protection regulations will come into UK law on 25 May 2018. GDPR will update the Data Protection Act and is more stringent in its rules.
We will need to be much more specific in how we describe to people how we wish to use their personal information. A great deal of our documents and forms will need to be updated with new ‘privacy notices’. Therefore, we ask that you do not stock pile forms or documents so that your members will always have access to the latest version with the most up to date information.
The NHS Business Services Authority is currently looking at the impact GDPR will have on its services, including NHS Pensions and the NHS Injury Benefits Scheme. We will let you know over the coming months what changes we are implementing and the effect this could have on you.
