Diana Kloss’s latest blog considers workers’ rights to ask to see their health data under the new rules.

One of the most valuable legal rights given to the subjects of personal data held by data controllers is the right to ask for a copy of their records. This right is currently conferred by the Data Protection Act 1998 and will be strengthened by the General Data Protection Regulation when it comes into force on 25 May 2018. There will be exceptions set out in the Data Protection Bill currently going through Parliament.

Diana’s blog looks at how the new rules will apply to OH practitioners, including changes from the present position under the 1998 Act.
