I am about to start practicing and wanted to know what method you recommend for storing client records.
Many Thanks

Dear Deborah

Your Insurance company will have an opinion on the type of records you need as a minimum e.g.Holistic Insurance Company - http://www.holisticinsurance.co.uk/recordkeeping/ or for a fuller idea then visit the ITEC site for their client record suggestions - http://www.itecworld.co.uk/qualifications/Diplomas.aspx?k=84. The link here goes to a Reflexology record but if you check out other therapies you will find the other versions more applicable, depending on what you are practicing.

Good luck with your practice, I trust that you will enjoy your work and feel as passionate as we all do.

Ann.

I am so sorry Deborah I have just re-read your question and realised I've answered incorrectly. A locked filing cabinet is the way I store records but if they are kept on your PC then I belive there is possibly a data protection issue. maybe some-one else can elaborate on that. Ann

For data protection it is normal practice to keep all client records in a locked filing cabinet. No one other than the practitioner and client should have access to records. Unadvisable to store files on computer
