We will also ask for information regarding any activities/hobbies/past times you undertake, your job and any medication you take.

We will also record the findings of a physical examination.

We use electronic clinical records. These are hosted by us onsite.

All information (except for credit card details) is kept electronically in a file dedicated to you.

We have a legal obligation to retain records for 8 years after the conclusion of treatment.

If the record relates to a child or young person, the records must be kept until the patient’s 25th birthday or 8 years after death.
