The privacy of your information

We collect information about you in order to ensure that you receive the very best care and treatment. Your personal details and medical history help us to give the health professionals involved in your care accurate and current information. Both state and federal health departments require us to provide coded information about certain notifiable diseases (like Tuberculosis). This information is in the interests of public health and it remains strictly confidential. If you are transferred to another hospital or healthcare provider a summary of your admission and care record will travel with you.

If you have any issues or concerns about your privacy please contact us 03 5975 2009.
