My Health Record information for councils – Your health record in your hands

My Health Record places your health in your hands. It’s a digital summary of a person’s key health information which is being created for every eligible Australian with a Medicare or Department of Veterans’ Affairs card in 2018, unless they choose not to have one.

Having a My Health Record means that your important health information such as allergies, immunisations, current conditions and treatments, medicines, pathology and imaging reports can be securely accessed by your doctor and hospitals, if and when needed, from anywhere and at any time.

Would you like to help inform your community about this important initiative? Councils can provide their support for the My Health Record by displaying brochures and posters in Immunisation Clinics, within newsletters or any mail outs.
