What happens to the prescribed information

The information will be gathered and entered into a database that is managed according to the same strict confidentiality requirements that apply to all other information collected for health related purposes (for example, in the same way that information is collected, stored and used for the Northern Territory perinatal register and cancer registers).

The Chief Health Officer will provide reports to the NT Health Chief Executive relating to terminations of pregnancy and related services across the Northern Territory.

  1. This information is available as a factsheet.
  2. A prescribed information reporting form has been developed to assist medical practitioners and their organisations to meet their reporting requirements.
  3. For more information, see the Northern Territory Clinical Guidelines for Termination of Pregnancy.
