It is part of our company’s mission to provide the best possible service to all our clients. To help us achieve this we limit the number of sessions each therapist provides in a day and encourage all these sessions to be prepared in advance.
If an appointment is cancelled without notice the clinician has still prepared the session, often travelled to and from the appointment and has been unable to see anyone else in that time slot.
For these reasons we ask that at least 24 hours notice be given if you are unable to attend a therapy session in order to avoid being charged the full fee.

ALLSALT Pty Ltd respects your privacy and wants to be clear about the information we collect, how we use it and your rights to control that information. We will manage personal records with great concern for privacy and confidentiality and in accordance with current professional and legal standards, including the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requirements.
The data we collect
The purpose for processing personal data is to undertake a speech pathology assessment, which you have agreed for us to do. ALLSALT assessments involve the processing of special category data including information about health, educational achievements, cognitive functioning, personality, interests and family history. Depending upon the nature of our work with you, we have a legitimate interest to collect such personal data for the purpose of forming a professional opinion or diagnosis. In doing so, we will only collect information from you that is relevant to the purpose of undertaking that assessment and the associated feedback and reporting.
How the data will be used
You will only be asked for personal information that is relevant for the work being undertaken. The information that will be requested and held will enable the professional working with you or your child/young person to decide:
· What kind of involvement is appropriate;
· What tests and assessments should be used; and
· Whether liaison with other professionals is needed
The specific work carried out will vary according to the individual’s needs and the concerns being investigated. The range of supportive activities that may be undertaken includes:
· Observation in other settings within an aged care facility,
· Observation in one of our clinics,
· Observation within your home,
· Classroom observation;
· Observation in other settings in the school, for example in small group teaching sessions or nurture group;
· Discussion with the Learning And Support Teacher (LAST) or head of learning/student support if the setting is a high school;
· Discussion with the class teacher/form tutor and other school/college staff
· Work alongside the child/young person in class;
· Individual assessment work. This might involve using tests, questionnaires or interview techniques for eliciting views;
· Discussion with other external professionals who are working with you or your child/young person;
· Scrutiny of reports or other written information completed by other external professionals working with you or your child/young person;
· Scrutiny of school/college/aged care information,
· Group work or therapeutic work
We may share your information in some circumstances provided it has been anonymised. For example, we might discuss the work we have done with you or your child/young person with other professionals in order to gain advice and to check that we are drawing reasonable conclusions and making good decisions. This is called supervision and it is common for professionals in health, care and education to ask for advice from their colleagues in this way. If we do discuss the work we have done in supervision, we will not pass on personal information that would allow another professional to identify your child.
Apart from the supervision mentioned above and liaison with external professionals who are working with you or your child/young person, ALLSALT will not share information about you or your child/young person to anyone outside of our company without your consent unless the law compels us to do so. We have a duty of care towards the individuals with whom we work and therefore we would have to disregard any promise of confidentiality if we thought a child, young person or adult was in any kind of danger and would be harmed, or cause harm, if we did not disclose some information about them or intervene in some way. Under these circumstances the need to keep someone safe from harm over-rides the duty to keep information about them confidential.
How your data will be stored
The work carried out with you or your child/young person will initially generate some paper information e.g. handwritten notes about work undertaken or completion of a paper test record booklet. This paper information will be used to create electronic written reports and/or summaries. In giving consent for ALLSALT to work with you or your child/young person, you are giving permission for written reports or summaries to be completed and for copies to be sent to the school or college. The report or summary may also be shared with other external professionals who are currently working with you or your child/young person (unless you provide us with a written objection).
Information is stored in a cabinet in a secured space or on a computer or memory stick or an online cloud based storage system for a period in accordance to our legal obligations.
