At the Galatea Clinic we are aware that the fear of being identified is one of the main obstacles to seeking help for doctors with problems with addiction and/or other mental disorders.
For this reason, all treatments offered by the Galatea Clinic have 3 additional strategies to the guarantees of confidentiality already mandated by Spanish law:
1. Change of Name: right from the first interview we assign a fictitious name to our patients. Patients' real identity will only be known under the following conditions:
a. By signed authorisation on behalf of the patient. b. In event of a risk to his/her physical health (if he/she needs to be transferred to different hospital from the Galatea Clinic in order for the illness to be treated). c. In case of physical risk to his/herself and/or others. d. By court order.
2. Clinical History: Patients provide their clinical history and the name of the person/people authorised, in writing, to receive information about their case.
3. Restricted Visits: Visits to the Clinic are absolutely restricted to those authorised by our patients.
