This notice is to let you know how I look after your personal information. This includes the information you give me and the information I record of my contact(s) with you and also the permissions you give me about  what marketing information you want me to send you.


I am committed to protecting your privacy. I will only use the information that I collect about you lawfully (in accordance with General Data Protection Regulations 25th May 2018).


I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, reference ZA480335.


I promise to:

·     Provide me with services

If you choose not to give me personal information it may prevent me from working effectively and safely with you. In this instance I would be unable to enter into a working relationship with you.

Sharing your Data

I do not share your information with third parties unless you have given your permission to do so or there is a legal requirement to do so such as protection of yourself or others if I feel there is a risk, or I receive a legal request for your records.

I share your information only with those you have given me permission to contact, for example your doctor (unless required to by law for the purpose of safeguarding yourself or others).

I will only send you information that you have agreed to receive. You may remove yourself from any mailing list, newsletter circulation or email from me at any point you choose.


Storing your Data

All data will be stored securely and in line with legal requirements.

I will store your clinical information for a maximum of 7 years after my last contact with you. Enquiries and applications that you make and then do not choose to follow up on will be stored for 12 months. You may request these to be destroyed ahead of this timescale.


Your Rights

If you wish me to delete, remove or stop using your personal information I will do so on request as long as there is no legal or justifiable need for me to keep it. This is known as the ‘right to object’ or ‘right to erasure’ or the ‘right to be forgotten’.

You may withdraw your consent at any time. If you withdraw your consent I will be unable to provide services to you. Please contact me if you wish to withdraw your consent. You should understand that when exercising your rights, other legislation and requirements may take precedence over any request you make (for example my insurers insist I keep all clinical records for at least 7 years). In addition, where necessary I may be required by law to grant access to your data for law enforcement, legal and/or health related matters.

How to get a copy of your Personal Information

Please send me an email at requesting a copy of your personal information. I will provide the information to you within 28 days.

If you believe the information held by me, about you, is wrong or incomplete please contact me. I will take reasonable steps to check its accuracy and correct it.

Thanks for submitting!
