Information Governance / Data Protection

Your personal information is very important to you and to us at Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  We recognise the importance of protecting personal and confidential information and are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.   

The way your information is collected, used and retained has changed substantially over recent years with the development of new technologies. The laws that govern the use of personal data have also changed to encompass these developments. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes law 25 May 2018, at the same time a new UK Data Protection Bill is going through Parliament to incorporate the GDPR fully into UK Law, which will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998.
