What information about the treatment do you have on file?
The only information retained in your file is the information considered necessary by your therapist to help you to meet your specific goal regarding your mental health and to provide therapy of the highest quality. This information is only used for these therapeutic purposes, is kept securely and is not disclosed to anyone else without your prior written consent.
Information is stored in a secure online environment (electronic patient dossier) which can only be accessed by your therapist.
As required by Dutch law, the information will be retained in your file for 15 years. Your therapist is legally permitted to, and will, destroy your file earlier if you request this in writing.
You can request to see your file and, for a small cost (€25), receive a copy of your file.
