Data Privacy Notice
During the course of your treatment, MIDDLEWICH PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORTS INJURY CLINIC LTD needs to hold some of your personal information. For example, we need to hold your contact details for appointment purposes and store your clinical notes on the premises as a basic requirement of our clinical professional standards. Assessment notes are likely to contain confidential personal information such as your medical history and details of previous and current treatment episodes.
We would like to make it clear that MIDDLEWICH PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORTS INJURY CLINIC LTD will never pass any of your contact details to a third party and under no circumstances pass on any of your clinical records unless you have given your express written consent in cases where medical reports are required as part of your treatment. If you have been referred to MIDDLEWICH PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORTS INJURY CLINIC LTD by a medical practitioner, then a discharge letter is often sent on completion of treatment. You can see these letters or any other records pertaining to your treatment if you officially request to do so via a written "subject access request". MIDDLEWICH PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORTS INJURY CLINIC LTD will always be happy to assist you in any request in this regard with no detriment to your ongoing treatment. We can also confirm that your data will not be used for any automated profiling purposes.
Only with your express consent, we may wish to inform you of changes to our service in the future.
You also have the right to have to have your personal data deleted on request and to withdraw treatment consent. However, we are required to retain notes pertaining to treatment episodes and any withdrawal of treatment consent would result in termination of your treatment episode.
Clinical notes no longer in use are securely archived after two years and securely destroyed on-site after eight years. We are however required to retain records for a longer period when the patient is a child.
All our clinical records are stored securely on the premises and are unavailable to anyone except authorised clinicians and our administrative personnel. Personal contact details are used solely for appointment purposes and are stored securely on a double password protected computerised diary system.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding how we store your data or any other issues regarding data protection at MIDDLEWICH PHYSIOTHERAPY & SPORTS INJURY CLINIC LTD, then please ask to speak to the registered data controller and Clinic Director, Will Stockdale.
