GDPR update

GDPR Poster

Today, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) becomes law. This means that all patients whose data is recorded by the Registry have enhanced rights around the collection and protection of their personal information. The National Cancer Registry values the privacy and security of those patients that we collect data about. To this end, we have produced a poster and flyer that has been distributed to Oncology Centres and Cancer Support Centres throughout the country explaining:

  • Why the Registry collects data about you
  • What it means
  • How the information is used
  • How the Registry works to protect your privacy and confidentiality rights

See a PDF version of the flyer here and the poster here.

Furthermore, the Registry has updated the legal section of the website, to explain some of the data collection and dissemination in more detail. Please see the GDPR Information page for more.

To be informed about the new GDPR laws in general, visit the Data Protection Commissioner's GDPR website where you can become aware of the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of organisations.
