Privacy Policies and Procedures

Our communities have been working together to strengthen the way we protect the privacy and security of patient information. Together we have developed comprehensive privacy policies and procedures and offered privacy training opportunities for health centre personnel. We are also helping each other prepare to become health information custodians under Nova Scotia’s new Personal Health Information Act.

For highlights, please take a look at our Notice of Purpose and our Privacy Statement. Copies are available at all of the Community Health and Wellness Centres, or you can download an electronic version here.

You can also get a copy of our full Privacy Policy and Procedures for all the details.
