Privacy Policy and GDPR compliance

I take your privacy very seriously. This page will make it explicit as to what data I collect and why, and my compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR 2018).

As part of our consultation, I’m professionally obliged to ask you for specific personal information. The information you will be asked for is your name, postal address, email address, telephone contact, and GP information.

Why do I need this information?

I use this as part of the administration process of booking your appointments, and to help me to provide you with the best possible customer service. If you provide me with a mobile telephone number or email address, I will use this to send you a reminder 24 hours before your appointment. You can opt out of the reminder, but I would like to hold a telephone contact for you for general administration purposes.

Appointments can be booked via emails, telephone or via text. Emails and texts are viewed on mobile devices which are password protected. I do not encourage sensitive data to be sent to me in this way.

Newsletters

People have to actively sign up to my monthly newsletter and provide their name and email address. You can opt out of this if you change your mind, by following the link at the foot of any newsletter from me. Newsletters are facilitated by MailChimp.

Third parties.

I use cookies to compile aggregate data from my website about its site traffic and interactions in order to offer better site experiences. We use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is sent or can choose to turn off cookies which can be done via your web browser.

I have profiles on social media sites. I post regularly but do not collect any information from these posts. Facebook do provide me with insights on popularity of our posts but I receive no personal information from this. These third parties are also subject to the GDPR and assure us that they are compliant. If you have any queries, please contact us.

Security of data

I never sell data, share data, or transfer data out of the country.
