What information do we process?

In order to give OH advice, we need to know who you are, what you do and what the issue is. This information comes to us from your employer in the form of a referral. The employer will discuss the referral with you, at which time you consent to the process. When you see one of our clinical staff they will ask for your further consent to the assessment and report.

 

Confidentiality and Consent

The information we obtain as part of our clinical services is confidential and your OH records are not able to be seen by others, including your employer. For OH advice to be available to your employer, we would normally produce a report for your employer, outlining the main issues relevant to your case. You will see the report and be offered a copy. We need your consent before we would send this to the employer. You are not obliged to give consent in which case, no report will be sent.

 

Security of information

We take reasonable security precautions for the personal information we store. This includes IT security measures such as data encryption as well as physical security and access controls. Your employer is also required to take reasonable precautions with the OH report/supplementary information that we send to them.

 

Legal basis for Processing

We process personal sensitive information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legal basis to process personal sensitive information falls under Article 6, Legitimate Interest and Article 9 for the purpose of Occupational Health Medicine.

 

Rights of Individuals

These have been strengthened under the GDPR and include the following. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact the data controller.

Rights of individuals under the GDPR

What we will not do
