Client Privacy

Client PrivacyPrivacy is each clients right to decide “who knows what” about them, and what that person does with this information. At the London InterCommunity Health Centre, we respect our client’s privacy and work hard to meet our obligations related to their privacy rights.

Personal information is anything that identifies a person as an individual such as their name, phone number, or birthday. Personal health information is information about a persons health or health care history – like a test result with their name on it.
