Confidentiality is central to my work with clients. I store all records securely and I will not share information about you with any third party without your permission, unless I am required to do so by law.
I keep the following information about each of my clients:
Name, address, telephone number(s) and email address, so that I can contact you.
Date of birth, for identification purposes.
Any information relating to your medical history and allergies that you have chosen to provide, as part of getting to know your background and how best we can work together.
Name and contact details of ‘next of kin’, in case of emergency
Brief written notes on each consultation and the interventions applied, to record the work we do together and plan for our future sessions.
You may ask to see a copy of your records at any time, by emailing email@example.com. I keep records on adult clients for a period of seven years, and I keep children’s records until they reach the age of 18 plus seven years.
If you would like to know more about how I protect your personal information please contact me. You can find out more about your rights as a data subject by visiting www.ico.org.uk
