Records permission not granted
I HAVE seen a bit of publicity on the ABC about something called “My Health Record”, which apparently is a government scheme for recording details about everyone’s health.
They say you can “opt out,” but they don’t seem to mention how you would go about “opting out.”
I don’t think it is really possible for any of us who are owned by a modern government to opt out of anything that matters to them; but for what it is worth, I would like to record that I certainly do not give my permission for the authorities to collect medical records about me.
