More about the Duty of Confidentiality

Strict laws for confidentiality
In the Norwegian health care system, we have strict rules for confidentiality. According to Norwegian law, all health personnel not only have a duty to remain silent about your health information - they also have an active duty to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to it.

Trust in the Health Care System
The Norwegian Directorate of Health writes, among other things, the following about the duty of confidentiality for health personnel:
«The population must be able to freely seek out the health service when needed and feel confident in providing the information that is necessary for health personnel to be able to provide proper health care. The patient must feel confident that information provided in connection with health care is not used in other contexts and is handed over to or belongs to unauthorized persons. "

People must feel safe to contact health care
«The purpose of health personnel's duty of confidentiality is to ensure the population's trust in health personnel and the health and care service so that persons do not fail to seek help for fear that unauthorized persons will have access to information. The relationship of trust is important for the patient to feel safe to provide the necessary information about themselves and their state of health in order for the health and care service / health personnel to be able to provide the best possible health care. The patient must feel confident that information provided in connection with health care is not used in other contexts, or is handed over to or belongs to unauthorized persons. "

"As a general rule, health personnel have a duty of confidentiality towards the police and shall not disclose information to the police for use in investigations without the patient's consent."
