Data Protection Impact Assessments

The Trust follows a privacy by design approach to ensure you information and privacy is a top priority in any new electronic system. We carry out a Data Privacy Impact Assessment, which is also known as a DPIA to screen new systems (or significant changes to existing systems) to check for any risks to confidential data. If a DPIA highlights any risk, these are appropriately managed and action is taken to remove or significantly reduce it to an acceptable level.
