Consent to Release of Medical Information
I give my consent to Yanada Women’s Health Pty Ltd, or their agent and advisors, to contact medical practitioners or other bodies who I have consulted to obtain health and other information that may be pertinent to my care. I authorize those medical practitioners or bodies to release such information, which may include sensitive health information, to Yanada Women’s Health Pty Ltd, or their agent and advisors, as may be requested. I understand that unless I advise otherwise, Yanada Women’s Health Pty Ltd will continue to liaise with the doctors nominated by me on matters related to my ongoing care.
SMS reminders will be sent for all scheduled appointment 2 working days prior. If you do not have a mobile phone or elect not to receive an SMS, our practice staff will telephone you on the number/s you have provided. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, we require that you notify us by 4pm the working day before. This can be done either by responding to the SMS or phoning 02 9134 5853. Any appointment not confirmed by return SMS or phone call by 4pm the working day prior will automatically be cancelled. Late cancellations will be considered as anyone who cancels their confirmed appointment after 4pm the working day before.
Yanada Women’s Health Pty Ltd does not charge any cancellation fees, but we do ask that you inform us if you intend to miss your appointment, so that we can offer it to someone who may need it more urgently.
