Following completion of your healthcare we retain your personal data for the period defined by our registrant body, CNHC.  This enables us to process any complaint you may make.  In this case the legal basis of our holding your personal data is for contract administration.


How we use your personal data


We undertake at all times to protect your personal data, including any health and contact details, in a manner which is consistent with our duty of professional confidence and the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) concerning data protection.  We will also take reasonable security measures to protect your personal data storage.


Do you share my information with other organisations?

We will seek your consent before sharing your information with your GP or other healthcare providers.  However if we believe that your life is in danger then we may pass your information onto an appropriate authority (such as the police, social services in the case of a child or vulnerable adult, or GP in case of self-harm) using the legal basis of vital interests.

We may share your case history in an anonymised form with our peers for the purpose of professional development.
