Chaplaincy services are considered an important part of the health support services provided through hospitals and other health facilities to patients and their families. 
  
A regulation has been made under the Health Records and Information Privacy Act 2002 to clarify the situation in relation to the provision and use of information for NSW Health chaplaincy services, and to provide a sound legal basis for information sharing with chaplaincy services in the NSW Health system. 
 
The regulation is entitled Health Records and Information Privacy Amendment (Accredited Chaplains) Regulation 2007.
