Due to the new law GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) I need to inform you with regards to the collection of your personal data.
The personal data I collect about you will include contact details, medical history and other health related information plus treatment details and related notes.
I collect and keep your data in order to provide you with the best possible treatment. Adhering to my insurance company, these records need to be retained for at least 7 years after your last treatment. In the case of a minor it is 7 years after the age of 18, if later.
This information is collected on paper notes and held securely in a locked cabinet and any contact telephone numbers and emails will be password protected.
Your contact details will be used to manage future client/therapist communications between us. Either by telephone, text or occasionally email.
This information will NOT be shared without consent. Also information may be requested by my insurance company to comply with a legal obligation.
I have to keep your records for 7 years as described above, which may mean even if you ask me to erase them, I may not be able to until after that period has passed.
