Psychology within Reach considers it very important to carefully manage your personal data. Therefore, we would like to inform you about how we handle them.
The law requires healthcare professionals to create and keep a file for every person they treat. This file records the data that is necessary to provide good care and/or to carefully carry out diagnostics. Since 1 January 2020, the obligation to retain healthcare files for healthcare providers according to the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (WGBO) is 20 years.
As a patient/client, you are entitled to view or request a copy of the information included in your file. If you find factual inaccuracies in the file, you can ask us to improve or supplement this information. If you do not agree with the information included in the file, you can request us to add your own statement (your opinion) to the file. You also have the right to request us to destroy (parts of) your file. For all rights applies that we respond to your request. We can only (partially) reject your request if we believe that the interests and safety of others, e.g., your children, are being damaged.
As healthcare professionals, we have a duty of confidentiality. This means that we only speak about you with others with your explicit consent. Only in special cases does the law give us the right to provide information without your consent. In such cases, as a rule, we will also first contact you to discuss this with you.
