Privacy Policy and Health Information Collection Statement

Learn and Grow Therapies Pty Ltd is committed to providing quality services to you. This policy outlines our ongoing obligations to you in respect of how we manage your Personal Information. We have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act). The APPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information. A copy of the Australian Privacy Principles may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner here. You have the right to gain access to the information held by Learn and Grow Therapies about your child.

Learn and Grow Therapies needs to collect information about you/your child to provide quality treatment. In order to fully assess, diagnose and treat you/your child, we need to collect some personal information from you. This information will also be used for the administrative purposes of running the practice, such as billing you. Information will be used within the practice for handover when another speech pathologist will be providing you/your child with ongoing assistance.

Learn and Grow Therapies may disclose information regarding diagnosis or treatment to your/your child’s doctor or other treatment providers only with your consent. In the case of insurance or compensation claims, disclosing information and/or collecting information that affects your/your child’s treatment and return to work may be necessary. Learn and Grow Therapies will not disclose your/your child’s information to commercial companies; however, specific service or product information as deemed suitable for your/your child’s speech pathology management may be forwarded to you by us unless you instruct Learn and Grow Therapies not to forward this type of information. Your written consent will be obtained at the start of your child’s treatment to carry out the above activities. We do not disclose your/your child’s personal information to overseas recipients.

Information at Learn and Grow Therapies is stored securely; only practice staff can access it. Learn and Grow Therapies takes all reasonable steps to ensure that information collected about you/your child is accurate, complete and up to date. You may have access to your/your child’s information on request, and if you believe that any of the data is inaccurate, we may be able to amend it accordingly. If you do not provide relevant personal or health information (about your child), in part or in full, to Learn and Grow Therapies, it may result in an incomplete assessment. This may impact the diagnosis and the following therapy that is provided.
