Please Note: All Coventry and Rugby CCG Policies are currently being reviewed and aligned with those of  Warwickshire North CCG. In the interim, policies have been checked for references to the Data Protection Act 1998. For these policies, the statement below applies:


In applying this policy, the Organisation will have due regard for the Data Protection Act 2018 and the requirement to process personal data fairly and lawfully and in accordance with the data protection principles. Data Subject Rights and freedoms will be respected and measures will be in place to enable employees to exercise those rights. Appropriate technical and organisational measures will be designed and implemented to ensure an appropriate level of security is applied to the processing of personal information. Employees will have access to a Data Protection Officer for advice in relation to the processing of their personal information and data protection issues.
