Privacy Statement for North Wales LMC


North Wales LMC is a representative organisation for GPs working in North Wales. The Local Health Board (currently Betsi Cadwalladr University Health Board) is required to consult the LMC on a wide range of topics affecting GP, particularly regarding contracts. In addition, the LMC represents the views of North Wales GPs to the wider NHS, other public bodies, the media and the public. We work to represent the views and concerns of North Wales GPs within Wales through links with the General Practitioner Committee of Wales (GPCW), and within the UK through links with the General Practitioner Committee (GPC UK). We provide pastoral support to North Wales GPs, including advice and support. Advice is given via the parallel company North Wales Local Medical Committee Ltd, which has the same aims and role.

Data Protection Officer

By virtue of our size, the data we hold and the processing we undertake we do not believe we are required to have a Data Protection Officer


Purpose of the processing

North Wales Local Medical Committee provides advice and support to GPs and practice managers in North Wales. We are the local representative body for all GPs providing NHS general medical services in North Wales recognised in statute. In addition to our statutory and representative functions the LMC provides advice, support and guidance to all its represented GPs and practices across a whole range of issues. We also represent non-NHS contract holding GPs.


Lawful basis for sharing

The legal basis for our processing is usually Article 6(1)(c) or in specific individual cases Article 6(1)(a)

(c) "processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject"

(a) "the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes"

In addition, the Article 9 justification for processing special category data will be:

Article 9(2)(d) "processing is carried out in the course of its legitimate activities with appropriate safeguards by a foundation, association or any other not-for-profit body with a political, philosophical, religious or trade union aim and on condition that the processing relates solely to the members or to former members of the body or to persons who have regular contact with it in connection with its purposes and that the personal data are not disclosed outside that body without the consent of the data subjects;"

But occasionally on a case by case basis we may seek your explicit consent according to

Article 9(2)(a) "the data subject has given explicit consent to the processing of those personal data for one or more specified purposes, except where Union or Member State law provide that the prohibition referred to in paragraph 1 may not be lifted by the data subject"

Recipient or categories of recipients

The data may be shared with Betsi Cadwalladr University Health Board, Welsh Government, the GMC and the NHS Wales Ombudsman


Rights to object

If Article 6(1)(c) is being relied upon there is a right to object. If Article 6(1)(a) is being relied upon you do not have to consent to your data being used by the LMC and you cannot object to the processing but you can withdraw your consent at any time.


Right to access and correct

You have the right to access and be given copies of any of your identifiable data we hold or process, have any inaccuracies corrected, have processing restricted and to have an electronically portable copy of any information you have given us. You have the right to ask for your data to be deleted.
