Data protection principles

In relation to your personal data, we will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal information we hold about you must be:
 
processed fairly, lawfully and in a clear, transparent way
collected only for valid reasons that we find proper for the course of your time as a patient and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes
only used in the way that we have told you about
accurate and up to date
kept only as long as is necessary for the purposes we outline
process it in a way that ensures it will not be used for anything that you are not aware of or have consented to (as appropriate), lost or destroyed
kept securely
 

Types of information we hold about you

Personal data or information means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed.
We hold many types of data about you, including:
 
your personal details including your name, address, date of birth, email address, phone numbers
gender
marital status
next of kin and their contact numbers
personal medical or health information, including past medical history
information concerning examination and treatment at your first and subsequent visits
letters of referral to or from the clinic regarding your treatment with us.
 
Special categories of data
There are "special categories" of more sensitive personal data which require a higher level of protection, such as information about a person's health or sexual orientation.  The only data we collect on this is in regards:
•Health
 
We do not store data on sexual orientation etc.
 
We will use your special category data:
•to ensure the care you receive at the clinic is appropriate to your condition
•to determine reasonable adjustments that should be made for access to the clinic or to treatment


We must process special categories of data in accordance with more stringent guidelines. We will process special categories of data when the following applies:
•you have given explicit consent to the processing (on our consent form)
•we must process the data in order to carry out our legal obligations
•we must process data for reasons of substantial public interest
Less commonly, we may process this type of information where it is needed in relation to legal claims or where it is needed to protect your interests (or someone else's interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public.


As with all cases of seeking consent from you, you will have full control over your decision to give or withhold consent and there will be no consequences where consent is withheld. Consent, once given, may be withdrawn at any time. There will be no consequences where consent is withdrawn.
 

How we collect your data

We collect data about you in a variety of ways and this will usually start when you make an enquiry to the clinic and continue when you attend your first and subsequent appointments. At this clinic, we keep paper and electronic records. Information we write down on paper may be transferred to our electronic system. We may receive information about you from your GP or other health care provider regarding your referral or, with your permission, additional information that will help us continue with your treatment. We may also hold the results of tests that you have undertaken and that are relevant to your treatment with the clinic.


Personal data is kept in the clinic in a variety of forms.  We store your data in the following ways:
•Paper notes: These are stored onsite in locked filing cabinets and are only accessible to approved staff and practitioners.  At times these records may be scanned onto our electronic system for storage.  When the time comes to dispose of your paper notes, in-line with our statutory regulation, these notes are destroyed using a cross shredder and professional paper disposal company.
•Electronic notes: We use a clinic management software package to manage your personal data, treatment records and any letters/communications.  This software is firewall protected and all back-ups encrypted.  A second back-up is performed to a cloud-based server off-site which is also encrypted.  Access to this system is by individualised password login only.  Access is limited to staff, practitioners and third-party practitioners who need access to the system in order to complete their role as a practitioner.  The software management company also have access.  Our software management company and third-party practitioners are all GDPR compliant and data processor contracts are in place.


The premises where your data is held is alarmed, has key holders for our area of the building limited to those who need access and is under CCTV surveillance.  The site is also monitored by an outsourced security company who do not have access to your data but protect the environment where it is stored.  All our computer systems are username and password protected.  We have multi-level firewall security in place.


Why we process your data (How we will use information about you)

The law on data protection allows us to process your data for certain reasons only, these are classified as legitimate interests. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:
•in order for us to carry out our contract with you (your requesting treatment and our agreement to provide it constitutes a contract) which will include confirming appointments, informing you of changes to appointments or clinic arrangements, changes to facilities or services at the clinic.
•in order to provide you with the best possible treatment by recording health and treatment information which would be in your best interest.
•in order to carry out legally required duties such as those required by us by our government appointed regulator
•where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests
We may use your personal information in these rare situations:
•where we need to protect your or someone else’s interests
•where it is needed in the public interest or for official purposes
 
Situations in which we will use your personal information
We need all the categories of information to primarily allow us to perform our contract of treatment with you and to enable us to comply with legal obligations.
 

If you do not provide your data to us

One of the reasons for processing your data is to allow us to carry out our duties in line with your contract of care with us. If you do not provide us with the data needed to do this, we will be unable to perform that care to ensure your best interests are being maintained. We may also be prevented from continuing with your treatment with us due to our legal obligations.


Change of purpose

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.


Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


Automated decision making

No decision will be made about you solely on the basis of automated decision making (where a decision is taken about you using an electronic system without human involvement) which has a significant impact on you.


Sharing your data

Your data will be shared with colleagues within the Clinic but only where it is necessary for them to undertake their duties. This includes, for example, other chiropractors working for, at or on behalf of the clinic, reception staff, practice manager and massage therapists.
 
We may share your data with third parties in order to facilitate a referral to another healthcare practitioner, investigation or to keep your GP informed about your progress with treatment.  Third parties that process data on our behalf include:
•Tim Jay Self-employed Chiropractor - data used for providing treatment/care.
•Sharon Davies Self-employed Chiropractor - data used for providing treatment/care.
•Helen Bernard Self-employed massage therapist - data used for providing treatment/care.
•Tony Spence Self-employed massage therapist - data used for providing treatment/care.
•Becky Behan Self-employed massage therapist - data used for providing treatment/care.
•Pioneer Software – Clinic management software
•Text Anywhere – Text messaging service for appointment reminders (Access limited to mobile number only).
•Physiotec – Online exercise programme (Access limited to name and email address only)


We may also share your data with third parties as part of a Clinic sale or restructure, or for other reasons to comply with a legal obligation upon us. We would always keep you informed of these situations.
 

Transferring information outside the EU

We do not share your data with bodies outside of the European Economic Area.
 

Data Security - Protecting your data

We have put in place measures to protect the security of your information against accidental loss or disclosure, alteration, unauthorised access, destruction or abuse. We have implemented processes to guard against such. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.  Details regarding data security is freely available to patients.  Please enquire and we would be happy to share our Information & Data security Audits with you at a mutually convenient time.
 
Where we share your data with third parties, we provide written instructions to them to ensure that your data are held securely and in line with GDPR requirements. Third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.
 

How long we keep your data for

In line with data protection principles, we only keep your data for as long as we need it for, which will be at least for the duration of your being a patient with us and we are legally required, by the Chiropractic regulator, to keep this data for eight years after your time as a patient has ended. To determine any appropriate retention period for personal data beyond eight years we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.


Once we no longer have a lawful use for retaining your information, we will dispose of it in a secure manner that maintains data security.


In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.


Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your time as a patient with us.
