GDPR Statement

(Why and how I collect your data and what I do with it)

I want you to be absolutely confident that I am treating your personal data responsibly and that I am doing everything I can to make sure that the only people who can access that data have a genuine need to do so.

Privacy Notice

I do not share any data with other organisations at all.

The fact that you have asked for my help and that I have agreed to provide you with healthcare (acupuncture treatment) constitutes a contract between us. I am allowed to process your data to the extent necessary to fulfil my part of the bargain. This means that I will take your name, address, and contact details, and a medical history during our initial consultation; I will record my actions at each subsequent appointment and keep those records in accordance with my legal obligation (for a minimum of 8 years).

If I am away and we agree for you to see a locum in my stead, you then have the same contract with that acupuncturist. With your consent, they will have access to your case history and notes.

When I am not using them, my notes are kept in a locked office in a locked and alarmed building (The York Clinic for Integrated Healthcare, 296 Tadcaster Road). No unauthorised persons have access to them.

If you make an appointment with me via our receptionists, your telephone number and appointment time are stored in a paper diary at The York Clinic for Integrated Healthcare, 296 Tadcaster Road. When the receptionists are not using the diary it is kept in the locked office on the premises.

If you have contacted me via my website then I will have your email details in my secure and password protected email account. I only ever use this email to contact you regarding advice relevant to your condition/ treatment/ appointments.

If you do contact me by phone, I will save your name and phone number in my contacts. Again, the phone is password and fingerprint protected, and I do not share this data with anyone.

You have the right to see what personal data of yours I hold and you can also ask me to correct any factual errors. Provided the legal minimum period of 8 years has elapsed you can ask me to erase your records.

Please use the form above to contact me with any questions you may have.
