Collection of Personal Information
Ambulance Officers in performing their duties will collect personal and health information about each patient so that adequate records of the treatment provided are maintained. It is not always possible to obtain consent from each patient to collect this information, as it depends on the medical condition of the patient at the time of collection. The information collected will be used for accountability purposes and will also be used to recover outstanding debts.
