Tracy Ripley T/A The Elemental Woman
I collect personal data to ensure assessments underpin and inform my professional decision-making (from the range of treatments and services for which I am qualified and insured to provide).
From the 25th May 2018 Data pertaining to treatments and contacts will be gathered with consent and client signatures stored on paper securely (locked and secured) and will not be discussed shared or shown to any other parties. Clients who share their data will consent to their records being held securely as per Federation of Holistic Therapists insurance requirements (obligations) for 10 years (Massage Therapies), FEDant7 years for Antenatal /Doula contacts. All attempts will be made to collect data in a way that is not specific, for example age range instead of Dates of Birth. A separate Marketing form will also be discussed and consented by the client to allow social media, texts, emails etc. contacts to be used as preferred forms of communication.
Online sessions will respect your privacy and be in-line with current GDPR legislation.
Referrals or signposting again will only be done with consent UNLESS the issue exceeds the parameters of ‘significant harm’ set out via Safeguarding to Adults Children the Unborn (Working Together 2018).In which case, transparency is a statute and is part of the FHT code of professional conduct.
