Medical file and confidentiality
A file is created and kept for the treatment.
All data that are important for the treatment are recorded in it.
From the age of 16 clients have the right to view their file.
Others may only view the file if you give permission in writing. You can also withdraw this permission later.
Even after your death, others are not entitled to access your file.
If certain information turns out to be incorrect, you have the right to have improvements, additions or changes made.
The file is the property of the practice and therefore cannot be taken. You can, however, get a copy of a part or of the entire file. The costs will be charged.
The file is stored for 15 years after the end of the therapy.
This is the legally required term. After this period it is destroyed.
