Retention of test results and information for quality registers

Sophiahemmet, as with all other healthcare providers, is engaged in development and quality work. That is the reason you are asked if the samples can be stored in a biobank when you take blood tests or tissue samples. Stored samples can be used for your care in the future, as well as for research and quality development. If you agree to storage in the biobank, your samples will be protected with support by the Biobank Act, although you have every right to decline this request. In addition, you may be asked to participate in various quality registers or anonymously complete surveys regarding your healthcare experience with us. You may also decline participation and you should inform the healthcare staff of this preference.
