Data Protection of Patients

Under the Data Protection Act (1998), I am required to advise my patients on my Data Protection Policy.

As part of the patient record, this clinic is required to retain information for the purpose of consultation for treatment, recording subsequent treatments, and for the use by third party medical practitioners only, at the request of the patient, in writing.

Upon completion of the patient details form, data protection and consent form, all paper files and information therein may be electronically scanned and stored on computer file for as long as the patient remains a patient at this clinic, and thereafter for a period of seven years. Alternatively, paper records will be retained for the same period.

All information provided will be treated as confidential, and not given to any other person/organisation without the written consent of the patient concerned. Information will be held both manually and electronically in files accessible only by staff of the clinic who are directly involved in the data entry and processing of patient records.
