About the Clinic
Our website address is: https://podiatryclinic.ie.
Our aim is to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), 2018 and other legal acts that ensure we maintain full and accurate records of the care we provide for you and keep this information confidential and secure. This privacy notice will set out information about the data we collect, how we protect your data, confidentiality and information security and your rights to erasure. It also tells you how you can obtain access to the information relating to your healthcare.
Information we collect
We collect information about you such as your name, address, General Practitioner (GP) and contact details alongside any health related information required for the delivery of your care. This data will be collected when you register with us, or sent to us if you have been referred to us from a third party (e.g. General Practitioner, Insurance Company, other health care professionals). This information collected may be recorded in writing (e.g. on an assessment form or letter), or electronically on a computer, or a mixture of both.
When you arrive for an appointment, our staff will check your details to ensure that our records are accurate. You will be asked read an information sheet and to sign a consent form which will be attached to your electronic record and you will also be given a paper copy. To assist with this, it is important that you notify us of any changes to your personal details (e.g. address, contact number) and arrive early for your appointment where possible so we can expedite this information prior to your appointment.
