It is our legal duty to ensure all your information is kept confidential. We do share information with your GP and your other healthcare providers to ensure we are giving you with the best possible care. We will never give any other organisations (eg. Employment organisations) any information about you without obtaining your consent. However, if your circumstances mean that you or someone else is at risk of significant harm, then we have a legal obligation to share information about you with other organisations.
Information about your treatment sessions are saved on a very secure computer system. Any information that is included in reports about the service is anonymised to ensure no identifiable details are included. These reports are sometimes sent to the NHS Information Centre, which compares the performance of each service in the country, and provides information of how we may be able to improve. Again, no information which could reveal your identity will be used in these reports. If you do not want your information included in these national reports, please let your therapist know. Your treatment will not be affected in any way.
