(GDPR) The General Data Protection Regulation
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 came into force on 25th May 2018. This represents 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. Community Pharmacy England, with other stakeholders, has worked to develop a range of guidance and resources to help pharmacy contractors to comply with the new legislation.

CPPE GDPR e-learning
The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has published a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) e-learning programme for pharmacy professionals.
The aim of the e-learning is to develop the awareness, understanding and skills necessary for community pharmacy teams to implement the GDPR and associated legislation in order to make it work.
