Healthcare Provider Organisations. As part of research studies conducted by TCR-Solutions on behalf of clients we collect from or are given pseudonymised patient data by Healthcare Provider Organisations for example hospitals, study sites, general practices. In these cases the data is not collected directly from the patient (Data Subject). TCR-Solutions does not hold the re-identification criteria or “key” to this personal data. Therefore TCR-Solutions is unable to confirm to any data subject whether they hold their personal data or from which Healthcare Provider Organisation from which it came.  Without the ability to re-identify the data subject, TCR-Solutions is unable to provide a data protection notice directly to any of the data subjects held in these pseudonymised patient records. In these cases the original data protection notice issued to the data subject by the data controller will apply.
