Everything that is discussed in the process and the documentation is confidential between you and the Health for All Family Health Team. No information can be released to a third party without your informed consent.
We do not provide emergency services. In the case of an emergency please contact the emergency department of your local hospital, call 911 or call one of the crisis lines listed in the front pages of your local phone directory.
The services we offer are made available to you on a strictly voluntary basis. This means your involvement is within your discretion.
In circumstances where our expertise is limited or ability to be objective is in doubt it will be our responsibility to assist you in getting the help you require.
We request that you notify us at least twenty-four (24) hours (1 business day) in advance of your scheduled appointment if you are unable to attend, except in those circumstances that would preclude the possibility of providing advanced warning. If proper notification is not provided, this will result in the loss of that appointment as part of your session allotment.
