Distribution of Information

It is our duty as a Physiotherapy Clinic to maintain patient confidentiality. The Caldicott Review in England 2013 highlighted that safe and appropriate sharing in the interests of the individual’s direct care should be the rule, not the exception.

We may need to share information about you with other health professionals directly involved in your care in order to give the best possible advice and treatment. We would always seek to ensure we had your consent regarding this.

Sometimes it may be necessary to share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; or, (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorised transactions; or, (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.

Retaining data and clinical Records

In general, patient records and clinical notes will be held securely for eight years from the date of your last treatment for adult records, and for children their notes will be held for eight years after their 18 birthday or until 25 years of age

Once the retention period has expired the clinical records will be securely destroyed and professionally disposed of.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
