What we do with the information we gather and what it is used for

Your information will be added to our database and will be used for the purposes of providing Case Management Services.  This may mean we need to share it with other health and social care organisations in order to coordinate services on your behalf.  These services will be agreed by you in advance.  We will not distribute, sell or lease your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes unless we have your express permission or are required by law to do so.  We are required to keep accurate records of our involvement including our decision making as part of our healthcare regulation.  We are also required to share information with your solicitor and/or the insurer, if they have referred you to our service.

Where third parties are involved in processing your data, we will have a contract in place with them to ensure that the nature and purpose of the processing is clear, that they are subject to a duty of confidence in processing your data and that they’ll only act in accordance with our written instructions.

Where it’s necessary for your personal data to be forwarded to a third party we’ll use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data in transit.

We may share your data with our parent company Frenkel Topping Group plc. Our parent company may use your data for purposes of monitoring business and conducting research and analysis to improve our service.

How you can access your information

You have the right to request to object, to see, amend, move or erase the data we hold about you at any time.  Full erasure of your records may not be possible due to healthcare professional indemnity insurance requirements, but efforts to anonymise and erase all unnecessary data, such as medical records that were sent to us, will be taken.  If you would like to speak to us about this, please contact the Data Protection Officer, Denise Moore, for the Frenkel Topping Group, at the above address.

How long we keep your information for

Keystone Case Management Ltd will keep your information until our agreed work is completed.  We will then close your file, but we are required to retain records of our involvement in your case for our Professional Indemnity insurers for seven years.  For children, this is seven years past their 18th birthday.  All identifiable information is removed at this point, but records of our involvement are retained and can be retrieved by the Data Protection Officer if required.

If you don’t want us to keep or use your personal information, please write to us at the above address.

What can you do if you are unhappy with how your personal data is processed

Please contact us in the first instance, to discuss any matters that require our attention.  You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority for data protection. In the UK this is:
