Data Protection for Health Staff
This workshop is designed for staff working in NHS Trusts and other Health organisations. The course will include the relationship between the Data Protection Act 1998 and issues specific to the health sector, such as the NHS Confidentiality Code of Practice, access to medical records, and the broader requirements of the Information Governance regime. Delegates will participate in discussion of issues relating to the handling of information about patients, illustrated by specific scenarios to highlight potential problems and their resolution.
