Policies

At Forest Hill Family Clinic, communication with patients via electronic means is conducted with appropriate regard to privacy. We do not use it for sharing of health information, only business use.

Although email is a convenient mode of communication, the healthcare industry does not consider it to be a secure or a private form of communication due to the risk of interception and/or the content being read by unintended recipients.

As a result, email will only be sent to patients who have provided written informed consent, accepting the above risks.

It is always best to come in to see your doctor if you can to avoid any miscommunication and maintain confidentiality.

We appreciate the need to be assured that your medical information will remain confidential. Abiding by the National Privacy Principles, Forest Hill Family Clinic maintains strict security, with your clinical information only accessible by authorised members of our team. When your health information is transferred for further care, it is sent via secure fax or secure message.

For full history transfer to/from another clinic, you must sign a Medical History Request Form and if sent on the disc, it is sent via registered post.

We abide by the National Privacy Principles and you can access our privacy policy here.
