All personal information gathered by the psychologist during the provision of the psychological service will remain confidential and secure except where:
- It is subpoenaed by a court, or
- Failure to disclose the information would place you or another person at serious and imminent risk; or
- Your prior approval has been obtained to
a) provide a written report to another professional or agency. E.g. a GP or a lawyer; or
b) discuss the material with another person, e.g. a parent or employer;
or if disclosure is otherwise required or authorised by law.
Kids@Heart will amend personal information recorded on this form upon your written request.
