Everything that you tell me is kept in the utmost confidence; even the fact that you attend for treatment. This is part of the British Acupuncture Council’s Code of Practice.

The only exceptions to this rule are:

  1. if you have an undiagnosed Notifiable Infectious Disease, or
  2. if I have good reason to believe that you may present a danger to yourself and/or others.

In both cases I may inform your GP.

Everything else is kept entirely and always confidential (including from members of your family) unless I have your explicit consent otherwise.
