The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which is the UK’s independent regulator for data protection and information rights, are engaging with organisations in the human health and therapy sector to help them comply with their legal obligations.

 

They will soon be writing to limited companies in the human health and therapy sector to remind them that they may have a legal responsibility to register with the ICO and pay the data protection fee. Therapists and practitioners who run their own business but aren’t limited companies may not receive one of these letters but may also need to be registered with them.

CNHC Registrants are advised to check their legal responsibilities regarding data protection.

Find out more about data protection in the human health and social care sector on the ICO website here. You can take the quick self-assessment to see whether you need to register.
