Your Privacy - Our Policy

This practice has always regarded your personal medical information as requiring the utmost privacy protection. The federal government has now passed legislation that seeks to embody our traditional commitment to your privacy. The provision of quality health care requires a doctor-patient relationship of trust and confidentiality. It is vital to understand that your medical care requires a properly-protected two-way flow of private health information between your GP and others including medical specialists, hospitals, pathology and X-ray firms, nurses, and a limited range of other health-related organisations. We have developed a policy to protect patient privacy in compliance with privacy legislation. Our policy informs you:
  • That we need your informed implicit consent to collect information about you
  • Why we need to collect your information
  • How your information will be used by us and to whom we may need to disclose it
  • That you may request access (conditions apply) to information we hold about you
  • That you may discuss any concerns you have about how we handle your information.
Further information on our policy is available. Talk to your doctor, or our reception staff - the full text of our Privacy Policy is available on this site. Please ask if you have any questions.
