At CVFP your privacy is important to us.
When you receive health services of any kind from this clinic, we collect individually identifying personal information and health information from you and share this within the clinic and with other health service providers that need the information to provide you with health services.

The privacy provisions of the legislation require that we protect your health information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure or destruction.
You have the right to access your information and in some instances you may also like others to have access your health information. In order to ensure we are protecting your health information we require you fill out the Consent to Disclose form. You can find this form at the reception desk and on our web site.
Some instances that you may consider in ensuring you have this consent to disclose on file is:
- If you like your spouse or family member receive your health information on your behalf (lab results, care or treatment information from your physician
- If you generally have someone else pick up your prescription, forms or letters
- If you would like us to leave urgent lab results ie. INR results on a specific phone number in order to provide you necessary information for your care & safety in a timely fashion.
- You would like to allow your CVFP health team to leave messages on your voicemail or answering machine regarding upcoming appointments, lab results or medication changes.
We understand that situations can change and we want to ensure that your sensitive information is protected and only disclosed with your authorization. With this in mind, please be aware that we are required to update your privacy consent annually.
If you have a friend of family member working at the clinic, you are not eligible to have them on your consent to disclose authorization.
