GDPR Privacy Notice


This Privacy Notice explains what personal information is held by Islington Studio Rutland, why we hold and process it, who we might share it with, and your rights and freedoms by Law under the General Data Protection Regulations.


What personal information do we hold?

Islington Studio Rutland holds clinical and health data and, when necessary, correspondence. Islington Studio Rutland also holds images known as ‘before and after photos’ which are required for medical indemnity purposes and help to improve your treatment. This type of information is known as ‘special category’ personal information.


What do we do with your personal information?

This is known as ‘data processing’. Patient data is held for the purpose of providing patients with appropriate, high quality, safe and effective care and treatment. All personal information is held securely.


What is the Lawful Basis for processing Personal Data?

Islington Studio Rutland holds patient data because it is in our Legitimate Interest to do so. Without holding the data we cannot work effectively and provide you with the treatment you have requested.


Who might we share your data with?

Patient data may be shared with other healthcare professionals who need to be involved in your care (for example if we refer you to a specialist). Islington Studio Rutland will not share your personal information with any third party without your consent unless there is a lawful basis to do so.


What are your rights?

You have the right to:

  • Be informed about the personal data we hold and why we hold it.

  • Access a copy of your data that we hold by contacting us directly: we will acknowledge your request and supply a response within one month or sooner.

  • Check the information we hold about you is correct and to make corrections if necessary

  • Have your data erased in certain circumstances.

  • Transfer your data to someone else if you tell us to do so and it is safe and legal to do so.

  • Tell us not to actively process or update your data in certain circumstances.


How long is the Personal Data stored for?

Islington Studio Rutland will store patient data for as long as we are providing care or treatment. We will archive (that is, store it without further action) for as long as is required for legal purposes as recommended by the NHS or other trusted experts recommend.


What if you are not happy or wish to raise a concern about our data processing?

In the first instance please contact Dr Debbie Lashbrooke at who will do her best to resolve the matter. If this fails, you can complain to the Information Commissioner at or by calling 0303 123 1113.
