What personal information do we collect?

The personal information that we collect from you if you are, or will become, a patient includes: name, date of birth, address, contact details, health and medical history, lifestyle history, details regarding your current health screening results.
If you do not provide to us any of your personal information that we require, we may be unable to refer you to the services you are seeking or to otherwise work or transact with you. If you attend the private clinic of a healthcare provider site, that provider may maintain and keep their own separate medical record about you.
