Summary: What are my rights? Under Victorian law, you have the right to know what health information is held about you, how and why it was collected and what it’s being used for. You can ask to see your health information and change it if it’s incorrect. You can also ask to have your health information sent to another health service provider. If these requests are refused, you deserve a written explanation.
