Information access and privacy – Did you know?

Did you know that you can view information we routinely release to the community on our publication scheme or find out more about our administrative access arrangements on our website? The Department of Health proactively or administratively releases information, unless there is a good reason not to, while protecting and respecting personal information. We may not release certain sensitive information where the Right to Information Act (RTI Act) and Information Privacy Act (IP Act) recognise doing so would be contrary to the broader public interest, for example, to protect the personal information of other parties.

Did you know you can find out how the Department of Health handles your personal information?

The IP Act recognises the importance of protecting the personal information of individuals. It contains a set of rules or ‘privacy principles’ that govern how Queensland Government agencies collect, store, use and disclose personal information. There are specific principles applicable to health agencies, you can read about how we meet our obligations under the IP Act here.
