To make an appointment to speak with Mandy Rampton please email her at NURSE.BrisbaneSDE@health.qld.gov.au.   Mandy will respond to your email on Thursday’s and Friday’s to confirm an appointment time.  Mandy provides free, private and confidential individual health consultations with assessment, support, health information and referral options.  She can also speak with you about many different health topics such as:
 

•Healthy eating and exercise

•Growth and development

It’s important to remember although Mandy provides a private and confidential service that is a part of Children’s Health Hospital and Health Service she will need to collect some of your personal information.  It is also important to remember that most of the things you talk about will stay between you and Mandy BUT there are some times when she may need to talk to others.  If you’re not sure about this ask Mandy and will explain it to you. 

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.

The other time it may be required to share your information is:

 

• when permitted under law

• for your health care or

• If you give prior consent

You can nominate people who you would like to share information with to help with your current care and treatment. If you are not sure about this, let me explain.  You have the right to withdraw consent if you choose to.  Please contact your School Based Health Nurse if you wish to withdraw consent.
 
Kind Regards,
