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:
(i) if you have an undiagnosed Notifiable Infectious Disease, or
(ii) 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.
