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 more information, please see the PDF Downloads located here: Notice of Purpose, Privacy Statement, and the full Privacy Policies and Procedures.  These documents are also available at all community health and wellness centres.

If you have any questions, the contacts listed below would be happy to assist you.
