Bellinger Valley VIEW Club took a look into the benefits of a health information database at their meeting this month with guest speaker Lynne Parnell, the senior project officer for the North Coast Primary Health Network. 

The ‘My Health Record’ initiative offers an online summary of each individual’s health information, which builds up over time and is available to participating doctors.

This is a convenient way to track your health information, especially if you move interstate or are in an emergency situation which makes it difficult to relay current or past health issues and medications.

The meeting on October 15, was great to catch up with friends, particularly Dee Martin who paid us a visit from Sydney, her new home.

Some members had a fun morning when they visited the Bunker Gallery at Coffs Harbour and enjoyed a great lunch at the Chill Out Café afterwards.
