The minimum amount of conduct money provided with a subpoena is $60, by way of cheque made out to “North Coast Radiology Group”.  This amount will cover up to two hours searching records, reviewing records, copying up to 100 pages and delivery. If the time involved and records located go beyond these presumptions, NCRG may contact you to discuss payment of additional costs.

 

Requests for Information

NCRG is subject to the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 and the Privacy Act 1988.  Any requests for personal or health information about patients or staff of NCRG should be directed to the General Counsel.  The minimum cost of handling a request (except requests under statutory authority) is $60.00.  Payment is required at the time of the request.

If you have any queries in relation to subpoenas or requests for information, please phone (02) 8423 2730 or email ogcgroup@ncrad.com.
