As a business unit of NSW Health, SEALS is committed to safeguarding the privacy of patient information and has implemented measures to comply with its obligations under the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002

Privacy of Patient Information
All staff working in the NSW public health system, including doctors, nurses and other staff, are bound by law by the NSW Health Privacy Policy, and by a strict code of conduct to maintain confidentiality of patient information.

If you have a complaint relating to your privacy on the grounds that you believe a health service provider involved in your care has contravened a Health Privacy Principle or Health Privacy Code, you may wish to request an internal review, to be carried out by that health service.

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the internal review, you may lodge an appeal with the Administrative Decisions Tribunal who will further investigate your complaint.
