Repat Radiology is committed to protecting and respecting patients’ privacy. All information is securely stored on Repat Radiology’s patient information systems.

Your Rights and Responsibilities
At Repat Radiology the health and wellbeing of every patient is very important to us.
Patients have the right to be well informed about their x-ray, scan or procedure prior to their examination and are responsible for the decisions made about their own healthcare. At Repat Radiology we help patients to make informed decisions and assist with any concerns.
The radiology department at the RGH is part of the public health service, SA Health who are committed to ensuring the rights of patients and consumers. For information refer to the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights. The Charter allows patients, consumers, families, carers and health care services to share an understanding of the rights of people receiving health care.
