The hugely anticipated EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) finally comes in to force today (25th May 2018), making the European Union Directive on data protection that has been in place since 1995 obsolete.

Like all reputable medical professionals, the way in which we process data here, at Health & Aesthetics, is a crucial part of our ongoing commitment to providing and pioneering the very highest standards of clinical excellence so that our patients are confident that their privacy is safeguarded by a secure data management system that protects their rights, further improve our already impeccable standards, and streamlines the subject of consent within the aesthetics sector.

Collation of personal patient data is of course inevitable in our industry.  It helps us as aesthetic professionals to continuously monitor patients throughout their treatment plan, and to provide the most appropriate advice that garners the best possible results.  However, by collecting this data, it is essential that our patients are confident that their data is being handled with the utmost confidentiality.

In preparation for GDPR, we have worked closely with the providers of our data management system Pabau to ensure that our GDPR compliance is as robust as possible.  Pabau have spent a lot of time working closely with Data Protection authorities in Europe and have already implemented strong privacy protections that reflect their guidance.  They are as dedicated as the team here, at Health & Aesthetics, to complying with the new legislation, and our collective collaboration in preparation for GDPR will result in a seamless transition that adheres to both EU regulations and our privacy policy.
