Milton Keynes University NHS Foundation Trust (MKUHFT) take Data Protection very seriously and has already embedded this process into the organisation since 2015.
MKUHFT has done this in order to ensure that any proposed new process or system containing personal information is adequately assessed to ensure that the Trust remains compliant with all legislation and no risk is associated with the use of your personal data.
The Data Protection Impact Assessment (previously known as privacy impact assessment or PIA) is a tool which can help organisations identify the most effective way to comply with their data management obligations and meet individual expectations of privacy.
An effective DPIA will allow organisations to identify and fix problems at an early stage, reducing the associated costs and damage to reputation, which might otherwise occur.
