FOM has produced new guidance  for occupational physicians and practices on their responsibilities under GDPR.
Practitioners should be aware that this guidance is general in nature and that each organisation should obtain its own guidance, either from specialist practitioners or from the Information Commissioner. In addition, as the law is still developing, FOM does not accept legal responsibility for this guidance, which may need to be updated in due course.
We remain immensely grateful to Diana Kloss for drafting this general guidance and for her continued support of FOM. Dr Steve Boorman, Chair of FOM’s Ethics Committee, has been consulted in its preparation.
