Consultation on Compulsory Assessments of NHS Bodies

March 26, 2013

The Ministry of Justice has begun a consultation exercise, which runs from 25 March until 17 May, which follows from an ICO request that the Secretary of State extend the powers of the Information Commissioner to carry out compulsory assessments of NHS bodies’ compliance with the data protection principles under the DPA.

The consultation paper aims to gather the views of NHS data controllers and Health Service data controllers. It can be accessed here.
