All mental health practitioners are required to abide by their respective professional organisations – Code of Ethics. At Delta Clinic, we understand that our clients are concerned about their privacy and confidentiality. We understand and take their concerns seriously; any information disclosed is confidential and will not be disclosed to any third party. However at times there may be valid reasons to share clients information with other relevant stakeholders. If that is the case the client will be consulted first to seek approval. The client will be requested to sign a release of information document specific to that purpose. The client has a right to withdraw their approval.
There are some legal requirements and limitations to confidentiality. This will be discussed formally at the first appointment.
Feel free to phone/email us if you need further clarification and/or assistance.
