Permission to release information is sought from you. An example is the requirement to report back to the referring GP regarding progress achieved in counselling, ensuring proper collaborative management of care.
There may be limits to confidentiality due to duty of care or legal requirements. For example, information may be disclosed without consent:
If the person is at risk of harm to themselves or others
If the person’s file is subpoenaed by a court of law
If you have any concerns in regard to these matters, please discuss them with Angela Ranallo.
