Welcome to the NWL IG Blog, where we have documented a series of tasks required for GP practices to become GDPR compliant.

This website has continued to be used as a resource to update NWL GPs about IG related information including DSPT, The national data opt-out and more recently COVID data sharing measures.x

List of Blogs and Posts (most recent first):


Each of the GDPR related blogs follows a similar format:

  • Introduction
  • Review of actions from the previous session
  • Work covered this week
  • Resources used
  • Output documentation
  • Lessons learned
  • Practice checklist
  • Work planned for the next session

Working through each blog post will help your own practice reach compliance and will put you in a good position to complete the required Data Security Protection Toolkit (new IG Toolkit) by the 31 st March 2019. Bear in mind that you will need your practice manager to set aside 1/2 day a week (plus a couple of hours a week of administrator time) for a minimum of three months to embed these practices in your day to day work – so you must be well underway by the New Year at the latest.
