Prior to commencing any assessment or services with you, your practitioner will seek your consent for us to provide the service and to collect any personal information needed to perform the service. We may seek your verbal consent, however, at times, depending on the service, written consent will be required. In each case, we will record your consent in your patient record.
You have the right to withdraw consent for us to provide the service at any time and in that case, services will cease.
For persons under a certain age (the relevant age depends on the State the services are provided in), or if a person is of the age of consent but lacks the capacity to give consent, consent must be given by a parent, guardian or substitute decision maker.
