As an organisation within the private sector Access Nursing Agency must comply with the Privacy Act 1988 and most importantly with the December 2000 amendment regulating how we can collect, use, keep secure and disclose personal and sensitive information. Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 introduced 10 National Privacy Principles which Access Nursing Agency has incorporated into its systems and practices in order to be compliant with the law.
Access Nursing Agency has a Privacy and Collection Statement clearly outlining how personal information is collected and stored. This statement is displayed on our website and each prospective candidate is given a copy at interview. This statement is made available in the appropriate form at every point of contact with Access Nursing Agency.
All Access Nursing Agency Recruitment Consultants have received training on the Privacy Act Policies and the procedures that Access have established to maintain privacy compliance. Access Nursing Agency has a Privacy Compliance Coordinator, all related complaints and enquires are referred to this employee. Our strict procedures prevent a breach of legislation and reinforce Access Nursing Agency’s commitment to privacy compliance.
These protections form an integral part of the high quality of the services we provide and ensure Access Nursing Agencies reputation remains well regarded.
