Confidentiality of healthcare professionals
Within the Swedish healthcare system, all healthcare employees and professionals are bound by professional secrecy. No information can be released or shared without the patient's consent. This applies to the person's personal information, condition or treatment.
The professional secrecy obligation is regulated by the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act.
Your personal data (name, date of birth or social security number, address and telephone number) will be registered at the Stockholm Student Health Services. An electronic medical record will be kept, where notes about your visits at the clinic will be saved, containing background information of your symptoms as well as actions taken. No one outside the Stockholm Student Health Services is granted access to this information.
Issues concerning patients' integrity are considered as very important within Swedish healthcare. There are laws regulating authorisation to patient data. Generally, only healthcare professionals who treat the same patient are permitted to share information regarding the patient's condition or personal situation.
