Govt agrees to extend My Health Record opt-out deadline again

The federal government has negotiated with One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson to agree to a three-month extension to the opt-out period for the My Health Record, having refused to accept a 12-month delay put forward by Labor.

The Senate this morning heard a number of speeches decrying the government's “botched” roll out of opt-out before Labor moved an extra amendment to the My Health Record Act, calling for it to the opt-out period to be extended to 12 months and for the Privacy Commissioner to review the existing system.
