Your Health Information and Our Privacy Policy
Minimize
Our practice respects your right to privacy and it has systems and processes in place to ensure it complies with the Australian Privacy Principles. We realise that it is important that you understand the purpose for which we collect details about your health, as well as how this information is used at our practice and to whom this information might be disclosed. This statement is a brief summary of the practice’s privacy policy. The complete policy is available on request.
 
The policy of Northland Dental Group, ABN 89704785912, trading as Northland Dental Group, is to follow these procedures:
 
1. The information collected will be used for the purpose of providing health services to you. Personal information such as your name, address and health insurance details will be used for the purpose of addressing accounts to you, as well as processing payments and writing to you about any issues affecting your health care. We may collect information from third parties providing the collection of that information is necessary to provide you with health care.
 
2. We may disclose your health information to other health care professionals, or require it from them if, in our judgement, that it is necessary in the context of your treatment. In that event, disclosure of your personal details will be minimised wherever possible.
 
3. We may also use parts of your health information for research purposes, in study groups or at seminars as this may provide benefit to other patients. Should that happen, your personal identity will not be disclosed without your consent to do so.
 
4. Your medical history, treatment records, x-rays and any other material relevant to your treatment will be kept here. The practice privacy policy sets out how you can access your records or seek correction of your records.
 
5. If you choose not to provide us with information relevant to your care, we may not be able to provide a service to you, or the service we are asked to provide may not be appropriate for your needs. Importantly, if you do not provide information that may be relevant to your care or that is otherwise requested by us, you could suffer some harm or adverse outcome.
 
6. The practice privacy policy sets out how you may complain about a breach of privacy and how the practice will deal with such a complaint.
 
7. As part of its electronic records system, the practice may rely on cloud storage providers located outside Australia. The practice will ensure that any offshore transfer complies with its obligations under Australian Privacy laws.
 
The practice Privacy Officer, Dr Neil Hewson can be contacted at the practice during business hours if you have any concerns or questions about a privacy matter.
