  • Our clinical and administrative staff are trained in handling personal information appropriately and responding to a data breach, and we practice the common cybersecurity requirements. 

  • There are two types of personal information that we may collect/process: Standard personal information (which can include but is not limited to your name, date of birth, and contact details like address, email and telephone number) and Special category personal information (which can include but not limited to clinical notes, examination findings, medical images and reports, correspondence and communications from other clinical professionals which relates to your current or past clinical care).

  • By law, we need a lawful basis for processing your Standard personal information and a lawful basis as well as specific conditions/conditions for processing your Special Category personal information. We process your necessary personal information for two reasons. First, it is a legal obligation as we are required to maintain complete and accurate records relating to the health care services provided to you. The records that we maintain require that we process a subset of your Standard personal information and Special category personal information so that we can provide healthcare services to you. Secondly, we process your data if it is in our legitimate interests (we need to take sufficient information in order to record whom you are when booking appointments, and so we can email you with relevant information about your appointments, invoices, insurer authorisation codes, etc, and to communicate with you if we need to cancel or rearrange appointments).
