The confidentiality of your personal information is of the utmost importance to Us and We comply with the Data Protection laws and all the confidentiality guidelines issued by professional bodies such as Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Information We get from other sources
From time to time, We may need to obtain information from third parties. This will only apply where it is essential for the provision of Our services and as permitted by law. Where applicable We will seek the consent of the client or organisation providing the data.
