All the professionals at Platinum Occupational Health Ltd work within a code of confidentiality.

We recognise that clients referred to us have the right to expect that any information given in confidence will only be used for the purpose for which it was given and without verbal or written permission, it will not be released to others.

The breaking of confidentiality and disclosure of information may be carried out in the most exceptional of circumstances.

Instances where disclosure can occur include:

  1. When it is required by law
  2. When it is required by order of the court
  3. When it is considered unequivocally necessary in the wider public interest e.g. serious crime, national security, child abuse, drug trafficking or other situations where your health and safety or others are at serious public risk

Whilst we do not anticipate this to be a regular occurrence. Should it become necessary to disclose information when it is in the public interest, the professional taking that decision will have considered the situation very carefully before disclosing any information and will take full responsibility for the decision taken.
