Your Data, GDPR and 
Healthwatch Wandsworth

What is GDPR?

Unless you've been living under a rock you've probably already heard about GDPR. The GDPR (or General Data Protection Regulation) is a European regulation that introduces new data protection requirements throughout the EU. It comes into effect on the 25 May 2018 and will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998.

What are we doing about it?

We have been working hard to get ready for the new GDPR laws, including reviewing how we handle your data and refreshing our online privacy policy and privacy notices, so that you're better informed about how we keep your information secure (read our Privacy Policy).

As our personal (and legal) mission here at Healthwatch is to find ways to improve health and social care services for everyone, this means that we will occasionally need to email you to gather your views, opinions, and feedback on different local services.

How we manage your data

Our online mailing list is handled by Mailchimp, a US company with servers based in the USA. Mailchimp recently updated its policy on how personal data is used, stored and collected, in line with GDPR regulations (please see Section 16 of Mailchimp's Privacy Policy). All of the information we store on Mailchimp is password protected.

Although we will never share your personal information with a third party, we may provide Wandsworth and Richmond Borough Councils, Healthwatch England, and other government bodies with summarised and anonymised information about our members from time to time. 

How are you involved?

You currently receive emails from us because you opted to become a Healthwatch Wandsworth member. You either signed up online, or perhaps you met a member of our team at one of our events and filled in a survey or membership form in person. 

Being a Healthwatch Wandsworth member means that periodically we'll also send you information about our public events, surveys, or other opportunities to get involved with our work or to find out about work the NHS is doing to improve local health and social care services.
If you're no longer interested in receiving emails from us, please click the button below. You can unsubscribe from our mailing list at any future time by clicking the link in the footer of any email you receive from us.

If you're happy to continue to receive emails from us, you don't need to do anything other than
make sure we have your current details. We'd like to make sure that the information we do hold about you is up to date.

Best wishes,

Healthwatch Wandsworth
