To provide you with a service
We collect information from you to provide you health services. For example, we will collect your information when you:
- visit the Pegasus 24-Hour surgery for after-hours care.
- use one of Pegasus’s community-based services, like our Primary Mental Health Service, or B4 School Checks.
You can talk to the health care provider about the information they are collecting and using for that service.
For billing and administration
We use your information for administration purposes such as billing and ACC referrals.
To improve the health of our communities
As a health organisation we need to understand our population and how people use health services. We collect and use information to make sure people can access health services, and that community needs are met. The information used to improve the health of our communities will not identify you individually.
For quality improvements, education and research
Information that is used by us to improve our processes and systems, and for education and training will not identify you individually. Information for research will have ethics approval and will not be published in a way that can identify you.
