WHAT INFORMATION WILL CHEIRON CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC COLLECT ABOUT ME? 

Information is collected both electronically and on paper records. Patient record cards are stored (contact details, description of condition, medical history) as paper copies, in locked filing cabinets. Contact details (name, mobile number and e-mail address) are held electronically on the practice principal's business phone and laptop which are PIN/password protected.

HOW WILL CHEIRON CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC USE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS ABOUT ME?

Information collected electronically and on the record card during the initial consultation will only be used by the Chiropractor in order to get an overall picture of your health and specific detail about your reason for attending the clinic. This will enable the Chiropractor to make a working diagnosis which will inform you of the appropriate Chiropractic care, including number and frequency of appointments. Your information will be updated at each appointment. This will include how you respond to Chiropractic care. You will also be asked if anything has changed regarding your health and personal information e.g. address and contact details.

HOW DO I GIVE CONSENT?

New Clients: Clients are asked to provide information in order to complete their patient record. They then sign to give consent to be examined and treated.

WHEN WILL CHEIRON CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC CONTACT ME?

You will be contacted via phone, SMS or e-mail to book and confirm appointments and for periodic reminders, as agreed with your chiropractor.

WILL I BE CONTACTED FOR MARKETING PURPOSES?

Occasionally, e-mails may be sent out to advise patients of changes in Clinic practices or practitioner availability. You may choose not to receive these when you register, and you can also unsubscribe from the mailing list. There is general Facebook marketing on the Clinic's page and I may contact you through that social media platform.

WILL CHEIRON CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ANYONE ELSE?

Information will not be shared unless you have requested sharing of information with another therapist/GP/Consultant or if you suffer a medical emergency in the Clinic

WHAT IF I AM A CLIENT AGED UNDER 16?

A Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) can be made, free of charge, and the Clinic will respond within 1 calendar month of the request being made.

DATA BREACHES
