Many health professionals prepare and provide written health plans, summaries, reports, letters and referrals (hereon in ‘health information’) for asylum seekers. This information sheet aims to:
- give an overview about who may request these documents,
- explain who may have access to the documents you provide, and
- reduce unintended access and potential consequences.
This information sheet will not provide sufficient advice for health professionals writing expert reports including: age determination assessment, or medico-legal/forensic reports to support claims in the status determination processes.
