COVID-19 – Subject Access Request Update:

Your request will continue to be dealt with under the terms of the UK GDPR and Data Protection Act and the CCG will aim to answer your request within one month.

Whilst the CCG will make every effort to adhere to the statutory timescale the current national coronavirus emergency may impact upon our ability to do this.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has acknowledged that resources, whether they are finances or people, might be diverted away from usual compliance or information governance work as organisations need to prioritise other areas or adapt their usual approach during this period.

The ICO cannot extend statutory timescales but will tell people through their communications channels that they may experience understandable delays when making information rights requests during the pandemic.
