The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May and brought in changes that affect our daily working lives.

The Legal and Information Governance team want to ensure that all staff understand the aims and implications of GDPR. They are holding an informal surgery on 27 June in Maxwell 513 between 1pm and 2.30pm, where they will be on hand to answer data protection-related questions.

The surgery will provide a confidential, 1-2-1 session where you can raise any concerns or general questions about data protection – you may be unsure if the information you are collecting is sensitive and uncertain if you need consent, or maybe you want clarity around how long you should keep information. No matter what your data protection question is, we are here to offer help.

“GDPR is all about protecting personal data,” said Andrew Hartley, Director of Legal and Governance. “As University of Salford employees, we regularly collect and process the personal information of our staff and students, so it’s really important we address any concerns and uncertainties we have as an organisation.”

We hope colleagues will take advantage of this session. Please don't be shy and feel free to ask any question you like, no matter how basic you think it is. We’re here to support you.”

We’d be grateful if you could book an appointment for a ten-minute slot at the session by contacting If you cannot attend on Wednesday 27 June and would like to enquire about future surgeries, please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you!
