The General Data Protection Regulations is a law(valid from 25.05.2018) that determines how your personal data is processed, kept safe and also advises you of the legal rights you have in relation to your own data.
These regulations will supersede the Data Protection Act. It is similar to the Data Protection Act (which the practice already complies with) but strengthens many of the DPA’s principles.

Your rights to information
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000 recognises that members of the public have the right to know how public services are organised and run, how much they cost and how the decisions are made.
From January 1st 2005 the FOI Act will oblige the General Practice to respond to requests about information that it holds, and is recorded in any format, and it will create a right of access to that information. These rights are subject to some exemptions which have to be taken into consideration before deciding what information it can release. In addition to accessing the information identified in this Publication Scheme you are entitled to request information about Trent View Medical Practice under the NHS Openness Code 1995.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you are also entitled to access your clinical records, or any other personal information held about you, and you can contact the practice manager at Trent View Medical Practice to do this.
Information about the General Practitioners and the practice required for disclosure under this act can be made available to the public. All requests for such information should be made to the practice manager.
Your Data Matters to the NHS
Your health and care information is used to improve your individual care. It is also used to help us research new treatments, decide where to put GP clinics and plan for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital. Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.
