The UK’s Data Protection Bill and the digital health context

On 14 September 2017, the UK Government announced the publication of the Data Protection Bill (‘the Bill’). The key purposes of the Bill are to implement and supplement the EU General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’); repeal and replace the existing Data Protection Act 1998 (‘DPA’); outline where and how the UK will exercise its right to derogate from certain GDPR provisions; and update and strengthen UK law to make the shift to the GDPR (and the UK’s transition out of the EU and, potentially, the EEA) as simple and as smooth as possible for businesses and individuals operating within the UK. Marcus Vass, Partner and Co-head of the Digital Health Group, and Jane Whitcombe, Senior Associate, at Osborne Clarke LLP, analyse the Bill in the context of digital health.
