Confidentiality

Confidentiality is important in building a relationship with you and will be discussed early on in your session(s) with us. This means that whatever you discuss in sessions with us remains private and will not be passed on to anyone else without your permission.

However, there are some exceptions to this:

  • When your, or someone else’s health or safety are seriously threatened, and the information will help them.
  • If your written consent has been obtained to share information to another person (e.g., family member, employer, doctor, or another agency).
  • If your case file is subpoenaed by court - we will let you know about the request.

To assist us in working with you, we will need to collect and record personal information from you that is relevant to your situation. While most of our information will be collected directly from you, we may need to speak to your doctor(s), allied health practitioners, case managers, family members, or others involved in your care with your permission. Your personal information will be recorded in a secure Paragon PsychConnect database not available to anyone outside of Paragon PsychConnect.

To assist us in working with you, we will need to collect and record personal information from you that is relevant to your situation.

Your personal information will be recorded in a secure Paragon PsychConnect database not available to anyone outside of the Paragon PsychConnect company.

Sometimes we may also have to provide files for a confidential review by the accrediting body (e.g., NDIA) to ensure that we are working within the national standards and frameworks.

We are bound by the Privacy Act 1988. If you would like to know more about how we collect and store your information, please contact Tony Wallace, General Manager (ua.moc.tcennochcyspnogarap@ynot).

Cancellation Policy

At Paragon PsychConnect, we understand that unexpected situations may come up, and you may need to reschedule or cancel your appointment. We try to accommodate our clients' needs while also ensuring the availability of our services to others who may be in need.

To maintain an efficient and effective practice, we have established the following cancellation policy:

  1. Appointment Cancellation
  • If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, we kindly ask for at least 24 hours' notice. This allows us to offer the appointment slot to another client in need.
  • Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours' notice will be subject to a cancellation fee of 100% of the session fee.
  1. No-Show Policy
  • If you miss your appointment without providing any notice, it is considered a no-show.
  • No-shows inconvenience both our practice and other clients who may have needed the time slot.
  • In the event of a no-show, a fee of 100% of the session fee, will be charged.

Please Note: 

  • If you either miss or cancel your initial appointment on the day, we will not rebook you.
  • Our experience has shown us that if people can’t make their first appointment a priority, they will be poor attenders.
  1. Late Arrival
  • If you arrive late for your appointment, please note that your session will still end at the scheduled time.
  • Late arrivals do not extend the session beyond its original duration.
  1. Emergency Situations
  • We understand that emergencies can happen, and exceptions to this policy may be made on a case-by-case basis.
  • Please notify us as soon as possible if you encounter an emergency situation that prevents you from attending your scheduled appointment.

  • Cancellation and no-show fees are due and payable on the day of the missed appointment.
  • Failure to pay these fees will result in the inability to schedule future appointments until outstanding fees are settled.

  • Private/Medicare: This is not covered by your Private Health Insurer or Medicare and is payable by you.
  • NDIS: As per your service agreement.

  • If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please contact us at on (08) 7095 3484 or via email .
