Privacy -header

General practice has a fundamental role in ensuring the privacy of patient health information. The updated resource Privacy and managing health information in general practice aligns with current best practice and includes commentary on the Privacy Act 1988. It provides guidance on the management of health information in a general practice setting and includes examples of compliance with the various Health Records Acts and the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which regulate the handling of personal information by both Australian government agencies and businesses. 

The RACGP has provided resources to ensure general practices are not exposed to breaches of privacy to assist practices to better meet the requirements of the APPs. 
The Privacy policy template for general practices and Patient privacy pamphlet template can be customised specifically to your practice, printed and made available to patients.
