    [post_content] => The Society of Homeopaths has published more materials to help practitioners deal with GDPR as the deadline for the changes to data privacy regulation looms.

After May 25, any organisation which holds data on customers, including email addresses and other contacts, must ensure it has permission to retain the information or may be in breach of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The regulation is intended to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe,

The Society launched an e-learning course to help members get to grips with the changes and understand the paperwork involved earlier this year on the Nimble online platform.

It has also produced patient templates covering data protection, privacy policy, consent form and standard letter for patients plus a set of FAQs answering the key questions members have raised.

Pamela Stevens, the Society's Marketing Manager, said GDPR was an important issue for practitioners and the Society to address, as for all organisations and businesses.

But she emphasised that meeting the requirements of the new regulation was not as onerous as some people may fear.

"There's no need for members to worry unduly," she added. "If they use the templates and other resources we have provided, they will find the process straightforward."

The GDPR resources can be found in the My Practice area of the website.
