Every medical record belonging to our patients is a confidential document. It is the policy of Southern Fleurieu Family Practice to maintain the security of personal health information at all times and to ensure that individual patient information is only available to authorised members of staff.
From time to time our practice undergoes quality control audits (for accreditation) which include a review of medical records. These reviews are carried out by another qualified doctor (not from this practice), on a small number of randomly selected medical records. If you do not want your notes to be reviewed in this way, please let our receptionist know and we will ensure your notes are not included in any quality control audit.
