I, Sue Verhey am director of my nutritional consultancy practice. In order for me to do my work I need to gather information about your current, past and family health, it is routine that I request a thorough and detailed health history, I will not collect information that is not reasonably necessary for us to do our job. This information is gathered by you completing my client form, prior to first appointment and verbally during your scheduled appointments. With your consent I may also request information from other healthcare providers including test results. Your information will not be shared without your prior written consent, unless I am obliged to do so by law.
Record keeping and access to my records?
Records are kept in hard copy and/or electronically. Hard copies are kept in a lockable filing cabinet and are only accessed by Sue Verhey. Electronic records are password and authenticator protected and are only accessible by Sue Verhey.
Sharing information electronically
I will electronically send you your blank new client form. You can either email your completed form and results back to me or print off a hard copy and return them by post or drop them off at the clinic directly. I do not take responsibility for how you handle or share your information.
