Patient Information, Data Protection Please read this information carefully and ask your practitioner if there is anything that you do not understand. We need to hold personal information about you both in electronic form and in paper records to help us look after your health needs, and your Physiotherapist is responsible for their accuracy and safekeeping. We do not keep any of your financial information such as credit/debit card details or bank account details.
Physiotherapists and staff at Harpenden Physiotherapy have access to your medical records to enable them to assess your condition and provide the correct treatment. From time to time information may need to be shared with others involved in your care if it is necessary, for example GPs, consultants, health insurance companies and their appointed intermediaries.

In other circumstances you may be required to give written consent before information is released – such as for medical reports for insurance claims, solicitors, etc. You have the right to see your records if you wish and the right to remove your details from our database. This will require a written request and may require an appointment.
