The Patients Permission

The confidences are those of the patient, not those of the doctor, so if a patient requests or consents to their disclosure, the information may be perfectly and properly disclosed within the terms of the patient's permissions.

Consent to disclose confidential information may be given by the patient in a range of circumstances. These include employment and insurance purposes, housing and welfare, testimonials and references, or legal proceedings (whether civil or criminal or family law matters, etc.). However, care must be taken to ensure that disclosure is limited strictly to the terms of the patient's permission and that there is no disclosure to parties with whom the patient may be in contention unless the patient expressly agrees to it. (The classic pitfalls are disclosure to the advisers of the other spouse or other party in contested divorce, child custody, or personal injury cases.)
