Client Records

Purple Turtle Therapy administers a full consultation for every client attending a treatment whether at our therapy rooms or off site. This information is used to create a bespoke treatment specific to the client’s needs, case notes will be made during/after the treatments for our records. The Confidential Collected Data is only available to the Purple Turtle Team and is not shared outside of our clinics, therefore data is stored as ‘legitimate interest’ data. If our therapists feel it appropriate or at the clients request your treatment information may be shared with an alternative healthcare professional or with someone in the medical service, however full permission will be requested, and the referral agreed with all parties before information is shared.

Your rights as a Purple Turtle Therapy client – If you don’t agree to Purple Turtle Therapy keeping records of information about you and your treatments, the therapist may not be able to treat you. Therapists need to keep these records to adhere to their Industry code of conduct and to treat clients safely and consistently.

After this time clients will need to do a full consultation for a treatment.

This information contains the learner’s eligibility to attend the course, contraindication, next of kin and personal contact details which is essential for training, therefore data is stored as ‘legitimate interest’ data.
