    We must also specify the purposes for processing your data. The purpose of processing your data is because you have asked for something to be done so that you can enter into a contract, or is in relation to a contract which you or your client have entered into.

    We need to inform you of other parties who we may share your data with. Internally we need to share your data with Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Sports Therapists Finance, Administration and Client Services.
