Legal Basis: Legitimate Interests

To provide the services you have agreed to

Whichever programme you have been referred for (Exercise on Referral, Cardiac Rehab, Stroke Rehab or other), our exercise instructors will work with you to develop an exercise programme that meets your needs and enables you to exercise safely.

in order to do this, our instructors will refer to the health information provided in your referral.  This information may be of a sensitive nature as it relates to your health.

Fusion operates the majority of our sports development services under the commission of a Local Authority or other  client.  We may be required to provide reports to our client to demonstrate the performance and effectiveness of our service. Where we do so, information will be anonymised so that individual service users are not identifiable.
