GPs in today’s ever
Cheshire Local Medical Committee Limited (LMC) is here
to support and advise the 600 plus GPs and their practice staff across
Cheshire. We are the professional voice of general practice representing
our members’ views at a national level; to provide gravitas
and profile to local views.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has replaced the Data Protection Act on 25 May, 2018.
DATA PRIVACY NOTICE
Cheshire Local Medical Committee provides advice and support to GPs and practice managers in the county. We hold names, email addresses, sometimes telephone numbers and, occasionally, other personal data in order to do this. We also maintain contact with other organisations for mutual support and advice.
The legal basis (under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, to be enacted by the 2018 Data Protection Bill now going through Parliament) under which we hold this personal data is the shared legitimate interest of all parties that this communication should continue to be given and received.
The normal system has been that practice managers will let us have the email addresses of GPs when they join the practice as we have no access to the NHS Global Address List. We intend this arrangement to continue, subject to the restrictions below. Data Privacy Notice continued view here
