The lawful basis under which I hold and use your information is my legitimate interest, i.e. my requirement to retain the information in order to provide you with the best possible treatment options and advice.
As I hold special category data (i.e. health related information), the Additional Condition under which I hold and use this information is: for me to fulfil my role as a health care practitioner bound under the AoR Confidentiality as defined in the AoR Code of Practice and Ethics.
In order to give professional treatments, I will need to ask for and keep information about your health. I will only use this for informing the treatments I offer and any advice I give as a result of your treatment. The information to be held is:
I will NOT share your information with anyone else (other than within my own practice, or as required for legal process) without explaining why it is necessary, and getting your explicit consent.
I will keep your information for the following periods: 7 years after last treatment for adult data, to comply with ‘claims occurring’ insurance or for any child treated within my practice: until the age of 25, or if 17 when treated then until 26 years of age. This is to comply with law regarding children’s records.
Your data will not be transferred outside the EU without your consent.

If you don’t agree to your therapist keeping records of information about you and your treatments, or if you don’t allow them to use the information in the way they need to for treatments, the therapist may not be able to treat you.
Your therapist has to keep your records of treatment for a certain period as described above, which may mean that even if you ask them to erase any details about you, they might have to keep these details until after that period has passed.
Your therapist can move their records between their computers and IT systems, as long as your details are protected from being seen by others without your permission.
