Jane Hill, West Pennine LMC Data Protection Officer
As part of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) implemented on Friday May 25th 2018, each practice is required to have a Data Protection Officer (DPO). We gather from engaging with GP practices in the West Pennine area that Practice Managers would rather not take on this role themselves. After discussions, it has been concluded that the CCGs and PCNs are not the appropriate organisations to take on the role.
In order to best support the LMC levy paying practices in Oldham and Tameside & Glossop, it has therefore been decided that the LMC will employ a Data Protection Officer on your behalf. We are delighted to announce that Jane Hill has accepted this challenge on behalf of all practices in the West Pennine area. Jane Hill has developed Data Protection and GPDR expertise, having been an integral member of the DPO team since the implementation of GDPR in May 2018. She has a Certified Data Protection Officer qualification, has successfully completed a DPA 2018 course and a 4-day GDPR exam course and has over 15 years experience of working in NHS Primary Care. Jane is part of a wider DPO network and will be attending relevant meetings and forums, including the GM Information Governance Group.
