Management of Your Confidential Information

Your medical information is confidential, however Suncoast Family Medical often forwards certain medical information to other medical organizations such as the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register. This is a normal practice and is only for the benefit of patient health. All information at Suncoast 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.

Test Results

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.

From time to time this practice invites patients to complete questionnaires on their views of the practice and how it could be improved. These surveys are completely confidential and help us to improve our services.

 

We believe that problems are best dealt with through the practice. Indeed, we want to know if you are concerned about any aspect of our service. However, if you feel there is a problem you may wish to take outside, you may prefer to contact the Queensland Government Centre for handling complaints.
