PDF guidelines, forms and information sheets for patients

Please download these only when you need them. As the current situation progresses, or I adjust my risk assessment, the forms may be modified to suit.

If you click these links and nothing seems to have happened, the file has probably gone direct to your Download folder instead of displaying in your browser. If you cannot view or print PDF files, please call me and I can send you paper copies.

  1. DECLARATION/CONSENT :: Consent to treatment form. This will have to be talked through with you and signed before any face-to-face/clinic treatments can start. If there is more than a 4-week gap between treatments because you're coming on an ad-hoc basis then the form will have to be re-signed. Also see Covid-19 Restart information page.
  2. DECLARATION/CONSENT :: GDPR/Data protection form
  3. Covid-19 INFO :: Clinically Vulnerable list based on medical outcomes worldwide.
  4. Covid-19 INFO :: Covid-19 symptoms: Government guidelines to determine if you might have an infection. If you think you have an infection and received a treatment from me in the past 7 days please contact me ASAP!
  5. INFO :: Covid-19 Risk Assessment document for my practice.
  6. ROWAN HOUSE CLINIC, HETHERSETT :: Clinic policy for patients and general notes for visitors (July 2020).

Data Protection/Usage Statement and other legal matters

The following information is required by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

  1. All personal information recorded or heard during any one-to-one treatment sessions is entirely confidential, and will not be released to any third party without your direct consent. If you want me to share treatment notes with other therapists (including doctors) or insurance companies, please ensure I have a clear idea of your requirements.
  2. For security, treatment notes are stored on a single paper copy with no electronic backup. If I do not see you for about 2 years this is archived. I am required by law to keep your information for a minimum of 7 years, after which time it is destroyed.
  3. I ask that you please do not email me with any medical or other personal details you want me to have, but rather send it to the clinic by post, or phone me and have a chat, or wait until you see me during a treatment session.
  4. As of June 2018 I am will ask you to sign a simple form covering all legal requirements.
    • a "permisison to treat" if you are bringing your child or baby for treatment, plus
    • permission for how you wish me to be able to use your contact information under GDPR:
    1. Your postal address, telephone and/or email may be used during any course of treatment to contact you for the purposes of that treatment.
    2. I also ask for a second optional usage permission - to receive occasional email circulars about workshops/clinic changes. Except under exceptional circumstances that would normally be no more than once or twice per year.
    A copy of the form applying ONLY to one-to-one treatments can be downloaded from HERE. (If this does not appear immediately on a new browser window/tab, it has probably been sent to your Downloads folder.) If you bring this ready filled in to the first appointment, it saves some time.
  5. Any permissions you give to use your contact information may be withdrawn at any time by contacting me directly by telephone or email.
  6. (As for all of your data held by anyone), the GDPR legislation gives you the right to request a copy of infmrmation I hold - whether paper or electronic - and for you to demand any changes if information is factually incorrect.
  7. Office management services for my therapy practice and online booking and sales services may also take your contact information independently to operate their services. I have no control over that data, and they have their own data protection policies. If I have have access to contact (address, email, phone) information that they take, then any of that information in my personal care also falls under my GDPR responsibilities.
