It is our aim to process information about you in a secure and transparent way that enables us to carry out our job of treating you/making you well again, at the same time as holding your data in a way that you are able to understand and complies to current legislation.
When you register as a patient we will ask you for some basic personal data including name, address, date of birth, contact details and medical information both relevant to the condition you have been referred for/have referred yourself for and any other medical information about your general health. This will help your physiotherapist/practitioner to assess your condition and treat you in the most appropriate way that suits your individual needs.
We are committed to ensuring your information is secure. We have processes in place to ensure that your data is not compromised. We have physical, electronic and managerial procedures to secure the information that you supply us with. We will not share your information with anyone other than the professionals (NHS/Private referrers) and intermediaries, (insurer, solicitor, employer or other party) that you have given us permission to share your information with.
All of our physiotherapists are DBS checked, fully qualified and insured to treat children under the age of 16. We do insist that all children under the age of 16 are accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18 at all times when visiting our clinic. We also require the child’s parent or guardian to sign their consent for treatment and acceptance of our terms on behalf of the child when registering them as a patient.
