The School Based Youth Health Nurse Service is a part of Children’s Health Hospital and Health Service.  In providing you with our service, we need to collect some of your personal information. The privacy and confidentiality of your information is important to us.  Most of the things we talk about are between the nurse and you BUT there are some times when the nurse may need to talk to others. Registered Nurses have a ‘Duty of Care’ to ensure you are safe and protected from harm and we may need to share with others if we believe:

​You are being hurt by someone else
​You are thinking of harming yourself
​Someone else is being hurt, or is likely to be hurt by you or another person.
when permitted under law​
​for your health care or if you give prior consent​
