Why are we asking you for your information?

We do need to ask you about certain things, like your medical history, as it affects your feet.

Sometimes it is necessary to share some of your information. So who will we share it with?

Primarily with you (our patient) and also with our reception staff so that they can help you make your appointments. If you are claiming your treatment costs back from an insurer then they may also have data shared with them to confirm your appointment details such as date and cost.

Where necessary or required we also share information with other healthcare professionals (such as your GP or nurse), your parent/guardian (if you are a minor) or your welfare guardian or carer (with your consent) if you require additional support to attend.

When we do have to share your data, we are required to comply with all aspects of the Data Protection Act (DPA) and are registered with the Information Controllers Office (ICO).
