Q. As Health Professionals and Therapists join and leave the clinic over the years what happens to my personal information?
A. All staff are contracted to comply with the Data Protection Act. It is also a core requirement of their Code of Practice. It is also in their individual work contract with The Copperhouse Clinic.

Any serious breach would be forwarded to the ISC for criminal prosecution.
