ARE THE APPOINTMENTS CONFIDENTIAL?
We take your privacy very seriously. Ordinarily, the information that you are one of our clients, anything you share with your clinician, records of appointments and client notes are held confidentially and securely. However, there are some circumstances in which we may need to share information that would usually be confidential:
- If there is immediate risk to your safety or the safety of other people
- If there is an indication of possible harm to a child or person under 18 years old
- If records or notes are subpoenaed by a court
- With your written or verbal consent, such as to facilitate referral to a new service.
For those accessing Inclusive Pathways, we will also ask for your consent to share basic and limited de-identified data with the ACT government who funds the program.
If you have any questions or concerns relating to confidentiality, you are welcome to contact Meridian Wellbeing Services or to discuss this in more detail with your clinician.
