Health Records Management
Our practice is committed to preventative care. We may issue you with a reminder notice from time to time offering you preventative health services appropriate to your care. If you do not wish to receive reminders for appointments or preventative health please advise reception staff. Please advise your doctor if you require a My Health Record (digital health record).
It is the policy of our practice to communicate via electronic means in accordance with the privacy Laws however it is not possible to guarantee that electronic communications will be private. We use an SMS system to confirm patient appointments and to send health reminders. Please advise reception if you do not wish to be contacted via electronic means.
