The provision of quality health care requires a doctor-patient relationship of trust and confidentiality. Consistent with our commitment to quality care, this practice had developed a policy to protect privacy in compliance with the privacy legislation.
It is necessary for us to collect personal information from patients and sometimes others associated with their health care in order to attend to their health needs and for administrative purposes.
In the interests of the highest quality and continuity of the patient’s health care, this may also include sharing information from other health care provides who comprise a patient’s medical team from time to time.
This practice will also send a letter to all relevant health care providers including the referring medical practitioner detailing the treatment provided.
