- Your rights relating to the information we hold about you.
- How we keep your personal information safe.

In line with new data privacy law (GDPR, general Data Protection Registration):
We hold your name, date of birth, address, contact number, medical history and treatment record.
This is stored on paper in a locked cabinet and on a password protected database.
Your data is kept purely for the purposes of keeping you safe so we know what treatment you have had and when.
Your data is shared with medical pharmacies only for the purpose of issuing a prescription to obtain the treatment required. This is because anti-wrinkle injections are a prescription-only medicine and therefore the pharmacist requires your details just as any other pharmacist would on the NHS when you go to the chemist.
Your data is not shared with anyone else.
We will not contact you without your consent.
Photographs are taken with written consent and are stored on a password protected device and will never be used without your written permission.
Personal data can be legally stored for 10 years for insurance purposes.
We will confidentially dispose of all data after 10 years.
You have a right to access the data held about you, to rectify or erase it.
You have a right to object to personal information being held although this may mean we can’t treat you.
As we have explained, we will take the bare minimum of information in order to safely treat you and hope you can understand this.
