Under data protection laws, providers are required to be clear with people about how and why any data they hold on them might be accessed and used. This is often done through privacy notices on websites. We would encourage providers to ensure that notices of this type include reference to CQC and a link to our privacy notice, as we may access care records and other personal data as part of our regulatory activity.
