5 point GDPR checklist for small businesses

Written by Jordan Odell, Digital Marketing Executive

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to replace the Data Protection Act on the 25th of May 2018.

It brings several changes to the way you as a business handle personal data, whether it is your patients’ or staff’s information. With the new regulation comes severe fines for data breaches, so it’s important to make sure you have the correct procedures in place to avoid the cost.

As part of our Practice Insurance, you can have acces to Abbey Legal’s elXtr service, an online hub filled with useful information and legal documentation to contribute to the smooth running of your practice. Resources on GDPR and what you need to be aware of are available for you to download and refer to.

If you would like to know more about access to the elXtr hub through our Practice Insurance, talk to our Specialist Surgery Insurance Adviser Abby Thynne, on 01438 870706 , who will be able to help.

In the meantime, we have compiled this handy checklist for you to refer to, so you can be on your way to having the correct procedures in place.
