Home » Privacy declaration

In order to carry out your treatment as best as possible, your physiotherapist keeps a record of your medical and administrative data.

The Personal Data Protection Act applies to this registration. This law contains rules regarding the purpose of the registration, the nature of the data that is registered, the management of the data, the persons who have access to that data and the patient's right of access. All these matters are laid down in regulations. Naturally, your physiotherapist will handle the data with care: that is why, in addition to the aforementioned Personal Records Act, a number of rules have been laid down in a privacy regulation. The regulations are shown below:

Complaints and disputes procedure

A complaint can be reported in writing to Physiotherapy Wilhelminapark Tilburg via or by post. Your complaint will be handled by one of the owners of the practice (namely Sven Bechtold or Jens Jongenelen). If you would like an independent committee to investigate your complaint/dispute, we refer you to the links below. We are affiliated with the complaints and disputes committee of the KNGF (our professional association). They will handle your complaint and are independent.
