Legislation:
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Vic)
Notes:
The High Court in Breen v Williams held there was no legally enforceable right to access medical records in the possession of private health care professionals. Victoria's new Health Records Act 2001 seeks both to protect the privacy of the individual's health information and to provide individuals with an enforceable right of access to their own health information.
