Your Health Information and Our Privacy Policy

In accordance with the Victorian Health Records Act 2001 and Federal Privacy Act 1988

Our practice respects your right to privacy. We realise that it is important that you understand the purpose for
which we collect details about your health, as well as how this information is used at our practice and to whom
this information might be disclosed.

The policy of our practice is to follow these procedures:

  1. The information collected will be used for the purpose of providing treatment to you. Personal information such as your name, address and health insurance details will be used for billing purposes including compliance with Medicare and Health Insurance Commission requirements. We also need this information to write to you about our services and any issues affecting your treatment.

    We may disclose your health information to other health care professionals, or require it from them, if, in our judgement, that is necessary in the context of your treatment.

  2. Your medical history, treatment records, pathology results, ultrasound results and any other material relevant to your treatment will be kept here. You may inspect or request copies of our records of your treatment at any time, or seek an explanation from the doctor. Statutory fees will apply in relation to the types of access you seek. If you request an explanation of our records or a written summary, our usual fees apply to these services.

  3. If any of the information we have about you is inaccurate, you may ask us to alter our records accordingly.

You can otherwise rest assured that your health information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. Disclosure will not be made to any person not involved in either your treatment or the administration of this
practice, without your prior written consent. If you have any queries or concerns about our handling of your health
information, please do not hesitate to raise these concerns with our practice.
