Assesment Criteria: 5.3 Describe situations where information normally considered to be confidential might need to be passed on.

Answer: Sometimes confidential information disclosed by a client may need to be passed on to others:

If there is a risk of danger or harm to the client, or other people, if abuse is suspected, or if there is suspected misconduct of a colleague, in respect of care of a client, (Whistle-blowing).

You must inform the client why the information needs to be passed on to others, and that it is your responsibility to do so.
