What information do we collect about you?
We collect information about you in different ways. You may have emailed us or phoned us directly and supplied some contact details. We may have received a referral about you from a case manager, a solicitor or your GP, or any other health care professional. We may have made an assessment of you and collected data about your circumstances including information about you and the people involved in your care.

We may collect financial information including bank account details with regard to payment for our services.
Why we need your data?
We collect information about you to;
- make contact with you to organise appointments
- assess your needs and make recommendations about how those need might be met
- write letters and reports about you to your case manager, solicitor, GP or any other health care professional
- make an assessment of any risk to you or others

Your information remains completely confidential and will never be disclosed to anyone who is not involved in your care.
There are some exceptions to this that include disclosure of your name and address to the police or social services if you are judged by one of the clinicians working for NPsych rehab to be a danger to yourself or to others. This is a legal requirement placed on all healthcare professionals.
This will be explained to you at your first meeting with a member of the NPsych Rehab team.
We will take cautionary measure to ensure we do not collect any personal data from you we do not need in order to provide and oversee clinical services to you.
We can supply you with a hard copy of this policy if you wish. We will answer any questions you have about privacy and confidentiality honestly and promptly.
How will we store your data and for how long?
Your data is stored electronically and it is password protected. All clinicians have access to our database. This is to ensure that in the case of your clinician not being available that another appropriate clinician can still continue your care.
If NPsych Rehab provides any paid-for services to you, we are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed.
We do not use your data for marketing purposes and you will not receive any marketing or promotional material from us.
We will never sell your data to marketing companies. You will only receive correspondence from us that is relevant to your care or treatment with us.
