GDPR guidance for community pharmacy

Community pharmacy contractors should be aware that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is approaching – all organisations must comply with the GDPR by 25 May 2018.

The GDPR and the UK data protection legislation that will accompany it represent an overhaul of data protection legislation and all organisations, including community pharmacy businesses, will need to take steps to ensure that they comply with it.
