All clients have the following Individual Rights under the Data Protection act 2018;
Right of access – This will enable you to request the personal data we hold about you.
Right to rectification – This will enable you to have any of your personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You have the right to see what personal data of yours we hold, and you can also ask us to correct any factual errors.
Right to restrict processing – This will enable you to block or suppress processing of your personal data as well as preventing us from submitting your details to third party companies. We will never share your data with anyone who does not need access without your consent. Information shall only be shared with your permission to another healthcare provider whom both you and I have deemed vital to be included in your treatment. Any other healthcare worker requesting information shall not be given without clear permission from yourself.
Right to erasure – The right to erasure is also known as the right to be forgotten. This will enable you to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for us to continue holding it. We have a legal obligation to keep your records for 7 years after the last treatment. In the case of minors, records will be kept for 7 years after they reach the age of 18, but after this period you can ask us to delete your records if you wish. Otherwise, we will retain your records indefinitely in order that we can provide you with the best possible care should you need to see us at some future date.
