We want to protect our patients’ privacy, as well as their health. Please help us.
Ask for permission to take photos
Only take photographs if the patient, or their legal guardian, says you can. Please don’t take pictures, videos or make audio recordings of our staff unless they say it is okay. You may not take photos or videos of other patients and visitors. This includes general shots of wards, waiting rooms, corridors, cafe areas etc where other people are.
Think before you upload
Do not post photos or information about your friend or loved one’s condition on social media unless they are happy for it to be seen by many people, including the media. It is not fair if other family/whānau members or friends find out via social media.
Thank you for helping us to care for your family and friends.
