Management of Your Confidential Information
Your medical information is confidential, however Sippy Downs Family Medical often forwards certain medical information to other medical organizations such as Medicare and the Australian Immunisation Register. This is a normal practice and is only for the benefit of patient health. All information at Sippy Downs Family Medical is handled according to the Australian Privacy Principles. Should you require further details, please speak to the Practice Manager (details below).
Patients are entitled to view or obtain a copy of their medical record. Reasonable fees may be charged for photocopying and doctor's time. Please contact reception to arrange this.
It is the policy of this practice to have all patients return for a consultation for their results. The Practice Nurse may give results to patients over the phone only under special circumstances and if this is organized by the Doctor during your consultation.
