Consent for the keeping of personal data under the General Data Protection Registration
As you may know, the new General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect in May 2018. To ensure that I comply with the new regulations, I would like to clearly explain how and why I keep your personal data. I keep your personal details which include name, address, phone numbers, email address, date of birth and GP’s name for as long as we are working together. These details are held strictly for the purposes of me being able to contact you. The only other time they might be used is if I feel I need to contact your GP if I am worried you might cause serious harm to yourself or to another. These personal details are kept on paper documents that are securely locked away. These documents will be destroyed at the end of our working relationship. I will keep the brief notes that I make after our sessions for a maximum of 7 years after the end of our working relationship. These are anonymised and locked securely away. This is to comply with the requirements of my insurance company in the case of me being summonsed to present evidence at a court of law. At the end of this period, the notes will be destroyed.
I understand and give my consent for my personal data to be held as described in the terms above. Signature :
