Cyprus: Commissioner issues announcement on professionals accessing GHS patient files

The Office of the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection ('the Commissioner') issued, on 24 June 2020, an announcement ('the Announcement') clarifying that she has not banned other professionals from accessing patient files in the Health Insurance System ('GHS'), as a newspaper stated. In particular, the Announcement highlights that the current structure of GHS does not allow partial access in medical files, meaning that another healthcare professional will either have access to the entire patient file or will have no access at all.
