We keep records regarding the care and any treatment we provide. We operate a paperless system so any paper reports or results received will be shredded through the hospital confidential waste system once they have been recorded on your file. We will e mail you a copy of all clinic correspondence and will request a secure e mail address from your GP so that we can forward them a copy of the correspondence. If you are referred to another health professional, we will seek your consent to provide them with your health details.
