My Health Record enables families to maintain the best possible health. It can help you keep track of your child’s immunisations, doctor or hospital visits and other important medical information. It will allow you to take measures to ensure your child has the best possible start in life and to arm them with their important health information, all in one place, as they grow. 

Healthcare providers such as doctors, specialists and hospital staff will be able to access your child’s My Health Record when they need to. This is particularly important in the event of an accident or emergency or when your child may be in the care of others such as a grandparent or childcare teacher who may not be aware of your child’s key health information.

By choosing to have a My Health Record you will record your child’s health story as it happens, and you can be sure it’s exactly where it needs to be when it’s needed in the future. As part of a National Government trial, people in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow, Penrith, Bathurst and Mudgee areas were automatically given a My Health Record unless they opted out.

As a parent, no matter where you live in NSW, you can apply to access and manage your child’s My Health Record online. The Child Development section of My Health Record is a place where you can add information about your child’s early health, growth and development. Children over the age of 14 can apply to manage their own record.

The My Health Record system uses bank-strength security including strong encryption and firewalls, secure logins and audit logging to protect individuals’ personal health information. Access to the system is via your myGov account that is the same online service used to access ATO and other Government services.
