15. Where relevant we maintain records of the patient’s consent to treatment, or the consent of their next-of-kin in order to be able to prove that the patient (and/or parent/guardian/next of kin) has given informed consent to treatment to secure evidence in the event of a civil claim, criminal prosecution, insurance claim or complaint.

We may need to provide personal information collected and processed in relation to complaints to the British Acupuncture Council or our insurance company.

It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.
