This organisation is bound by the National Privacy Principles set out in the Privacy Act 1988 of the Commonwealth of Australia and the Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000. The practice also operates in accordance with the Code of Conduct of the Australian Podiatry Association.

This practice takes great care to ensure that our information records are accurate and are treated with full regard to the privacy of our patients.

The health information we hold helps us provide our patients with the best possible health care and may be disclosed to other professionals involved in your medical well being. If we need to disclose information about you to other people other than those associated with your treatment, we will seek your permission first.

Occasionally we may be involved in research on health issues. If any data from this practice is used in research, seminars or conferences, it will not include information which identifies our patients, unless special circumstances apply.

Any health information from this practice used for quality assurance or clinical audit activities is de-identified to protect the privacy of our patients.

This practice has systems in place to protect the security of our health records. Nobody other than our staff has access to these records. All records are kept in a secure location and no unauthorised person has access to them.

Records of patients who no longer attend this practice are kept for the legislated period of time, in a secure place according to legal requirements and then destroyed.

If you would like to discuss any aspects of our privacy policy, or review your health records, please advise your treating Podiatrist.
