GDPR & the Bolton Care Record

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Bolton NHS Foundation Trust,

I would like to make a request under the FOI Act.

For the purposes of the Act, please take the date of your receipt of this request as Tuesday 24th April.

I remain interested in how Bolton NHS FT is planning to comply with the EU GDPR requirements for the data that it processes (extracts & uploads) to the Bolton Care Record (BCR).

My understanding remains that you will extract and upload data to the BCR for both direct care and secondary uses purposes after 25th May.

You have previously responded to a FOI request of mine:

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...

"The Bolton Care record along with all our other systems and processes within the Trust are being reviewed as part of our GDPR programme."

I trust that has occurred now.

I am requesting the following information:

DIRECT CARE:

1) Please could you tell me which lawful basis, as set out in Article 6 of the GDPR, will you be relying upon to enable processing of personal data for direct care purposes?

2) Please could you provide me with the procedure that patients must follow in order to express their right to object to such processing (as is their right under Article 21).
Please could you provide me with:

a) the form that they must fill in, or a description of the information that you require from them in order to process their objection

b) to whom they must send their objection (e.g. department, address or email address)

c) confirmation that patients will not simply be told to "go and see your GP" when expressing their right to object (i.e. that *you*, as the data controller, will deal with their objection as per Article 21 and Recital 69)

d) confirmation that any upheld objection will ensure that no data about the patient will be extracted and uploaded to the BCR by your organisation, yet still allowing the patient to have a BCR consisting of records derived from the other contributing organisations (including their GP practice)

e) any such policy that you have that, in part or whole, details how BCR "right to object" expressions for direct care will be managed

SECONDARY USES:

3) Please could you tell me which lawful basis, as set out in Article 6 of the GDPR, will you be relying upon to enable processing (extraction and uploading) of personal data for secondary uses?

4) Please could you tell me which lawful basis, as set out in Article 9 of the GDPR, will you be relying upon to enable processing (extraction and uploading) of special category data for secondary uses?

2) Please could you provide me with the procedure that patients must follow in order to express their right to object to such secondary uses processing (as is their right under Article 21).
Please could you provide me with:

a) the form that they must fill in, or a description of the information that you require from them in order to process their objection

b) to whom they must send their objection (e.g. department, address or email address)

c) confirmation that patients will not simply be told to "go and see your GP" when expressing their right to object (i.e. that *you*, as the data controller, will deal with their objection as per Article 21 and Recital 69)

d) any such policy that you have that, in part or whole, details how BCR "right to object" expressions for secondary uses will be managed

I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to send me the requested information promptly and in any event not later than the twentieth working day following the date of receipt of my request.

I would be grateful if you would kindly acknowledge receipt of this request as recommended by the ICO (“It would be good practice to acknowledge receipt of requests and to refer to the 20 working day time limit, so that applicants know their request is being dealt with”).

Thank you once again.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Neil Bhatia
