The Data Protection Act 2018 controls how your personal information is used by organisations, including NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
We follow a strict set of rules called ‘data protection principles’. We make sure that the data we have about is:
- used fairly, lawfully and transparently
- used for specified, explicit purposes
- used in a way that is adequate, relevant and limited to only what is necessary
- accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date
- kept for no longer than is necessary
- handled in a way that ensures appropriate security, including protection against unlawful or unauthorised processing, access, loss, destruction or damage
You have the right to find out what information we store about you. These include the right to:
- be informed about how your data is being used
- access personal data
- have incorrect data updated
- have data erased
- stop or restrict the processing of your data
- data portability (allowing you to get and reuse your data for different services)
- object to how your data is processed in certain circumstances
A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process that helps us to identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project. They are a legal requirement when processing information that is likely to result in a high risk to individuals.
It is a key part of our accountability obligations under the UK General Data Protection Regulation, and helps us assess and demonstrate how we comply with all of our data protection obligations.
If you require a copy of a DPIA, these can be requested under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
We will soon add a link to the information we have released in response to Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) requests.
Please note this disclosure log only includes DPIA responses issued by NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, and only those responses which include statistical information which is not published elsewhere.
It is not a comprehensive disclosure log, and does not represent all the DPIA responses issued by NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
