My Health Report opt out extended to the end of January 2019

Thursday 15th November was to mark the end of the My Health Record opt out period Australians now have until the end of January 2019 to opt out of the My Health records system, after the senate accepted a compromise from One Nation.

That date has been extended once again. To opt out visit:
