Personal data has been defined by the act as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified’.

The personal data we collect includes information relating to your name, address, date of birth, medical notes and wider contact details which you provided at initial assessment. This is stored only as the original hard copy and is never duplicated or shared with any third party, this includes any copies of medical records you may have volunteered.

Record Keeping and the GDPR
Due to the nature of our business it is a requirement that personal data and records are kept for 7 years after the last treatment. In the case of minors records are kept for 7 years after they reach the age of 18. During this time data will remain stored in the same way as mentioned above.
