I am registered with the Information Comissioner's Office & can provide proof upon request.
What information is being collected?
As part of visiting me as a therapist I will need to collect your personal details on your first visit - date of birth, address, telephone numbers, email and relevant medical information relating to your session. On occasion data from relevant medical notes / letters and scans may also be requested.
Personal data about your presenting symptoms and treatment provided will also be documented in detail. You have access to this information at all times.
All data will be collected by pen & paper format & will be held in a locked filing cabinet.
Why is it being collected?
Data is collected to record, guide and supervise your progress and be able to communicate effectively with you for the best outcomes. It is also used to compare progress week to week and to highlight changes, red flags, action to be taken and a detailed dialogue of treatment provided.
How will it be used?
Data will be used to communicate appointments, session information, progress & relevant referrals
Who will it be shared with?
Data is rarely used to communicate and be shared outside of the clinical environment. On occasion you may be asked for permission for the information to be shared with another practitioner or medical service for referred treatment. Full permission will be requested first.
