In order to provide you with the highest standard of psychiatric care, Dr Stefan will need to collect and record personal information from you that is relevant to your current situation. This information will be a necessary part of your assessment and treatment that is conducted.
All personal information gathered during the provision of the psychiatric service will remain confidential and secure except when:
- 1. It is subpoenaed by a court or
- 2. If failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at risk; or
- 3. Your prior approval has been obtained to exchange information and provide written reports to another professional or agency, e.g. a health professional other that the referring GP, a lawyer, school.
Details of your problem will only be discussed with your referring medical practitioner in order to provide a collaborative treatment for you.
