Data Protection Impacy Assessments (DPIA)

Here at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, we take your data privacy incredibly seriously and as such we regularly undertake Data Protection Impact Assessment to ensure your data privacy is at the forefront of what we do.


What is a DPIA?


A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a privacy-related impact assessment whose objective is to identify and analyse how privacy might be affected by certain actions or activities.

A DPIA is an obligation under GDPR designed to help the Trust analyse, identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project or plan.


If you would like any further information over a specific DPIA the Trust has undertaken, please contact the Freedom of Information team:
