Your Personal Information

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Purpose of processing the Information I hold

The purpose of holding and using the information I retain is to fulfil my role as a healthcare practitioner bound under Confidentiality as defined in the Association of Reflexologists Code of Practice and Ethics, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council Code of Conduct, The National Society of Health Coaches Code of Ethics, and the British Medical Acupuncture Society Code of Practice.

Lawful Basis for holding and using client Information

The lawful basis under which I hold and use your information is “my legitimate interests” i.e. my requirement to retain the information you provide in order to provide you with health and wellbeing related services.

In order to provide appropriate care and support, I need to ask for and keep information about you. I will not use this information for any other purpose (except as required for legal purposes) without your prior consent. The information to be held is:

  • Your contact details
  • Your medical history
  • Your presenting health and wellbeing problems
  • Your current medications
  • Records of consultations and treatments
  • Records of payments
I may retain this information with respect to respect previous clients, in the event that a former client may wish to re-seek the service at a later date.

How long do I keep your information for?

The criteria used for determining the retention period is as follows:

  • For current clients, I keep all information in line with my legitimate interest above.
  • For former clients, I will keep all information for 7 years, after which time electronic data is deleted and paper records shredded. Keeping records for this period of time enables me to:
    • Maintain continuity of care should you wish to re-consult at a later date.
    • Confirm any details of prior treatments which you may ask of me.

Data Security

I am committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, I have put in place appropriate technical and physical procedures to safeguard and secure the information I collect from you. All computers and systems used are password protected. Information stored on paper is stored in secure areas or locked cabinets.

I will contact you using the contact preferences you have given me in relation to:

  • Appointment times
  • Reflexology/ Health Coaching/ Acupuncture information
  • Information related to your health
  • Special offers and promotions
