Queries Regarding Data Protection Issues

New legislation (General Data Protection Regulation and Data Protection Act 2018) mandates that the CCG appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).This is because we are a public body.

The DPO will assist us to monitor internal compliance, inform and advise on data protection obligations and act as a contact point for data subjects (members of the public and employees) where there are concerns or queries regarding Data Protection.  The DPO will also act as a contact point for communication with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

The CCG has appointed a shared service to deliver the DPO role provided by eMBED Health Consortium.

If you wish to contact the DPO then please use the following contact details stating in the heading which organisation you are enquiring about: embed.gdpr@nhs.net
