My Health info thanks
Dear Editor, Tocumwal Local Health Advisory Committee would like to thank the SRN for promoting our My Health Record information sessions, to be held August 27 and 28 (‘Local Sessions on My Health Record’, August 15).
We thought it was important to advise readers that since publication of our article the government has made three changes to the opt in, opt out and other conditions.
The opt out period has been extended from October to November 15, 2018.
A court order will now be required to access your record (not just a System Operator).
Your record will be permanently deleted when you cancel it (not archived for 30 years after death).
These are significant changes and we appreciate the opportunity to update readers.
Yours etc. Anne Pyle Tocumwal Optimists and LHAC
