Privacy Information

The privacy of your personal information is important to us at Vista Day Surgery and we are committed to ensuring it is protected.  Vista Day Surgery complies with the Australian Privacy Principles in relation to the management of personal information.

Your health information collected by Vista Day Surgery assists in providing a health service to you. Typically, it includes information relating to your symptoms, examination, test results, diagnosis, treatment, and care information as well as admission and registration information. Vista Day Surgery proposes to collect health information from you for the following purposes:

  • To process your registration, admission and discharge,
  • To ensure that each health care professional involved in your care has all the facts relating to your consultation and/or procedure.

The intended recipients of your health information are:

  • Staff involved in your care at Vista Day Surgery,
  • Data service providers engaged by Vista Day Surgery from time to time,
  • Department of Human Services, other governmental departments or legal entities, where disclosure is obliged by law, and
  • Staff at selected pathology and/or radiology services if required.

The supply of the information by you is voluntary, except where required by law. However, should you not supply the information, or supply only part of it, this may compromise your future care or treatment, particularly where the information is necessary for your required care or treatment. If you have already provided information and consent for its use and disclosure, but you have changed your mind, you can make written application to revoke your earlier consent.

You have the right to request access to, and to request correction of, your health information in accordance with the relevant legislation.

Further information about these procedures, patients’ rights, responsibilities and our complaints process is available in our reception area at Vista Day Surgery.
