My Health Notebook

My Health Notebook is a free, personal health journal for residents of the WNSW PHN region.

It helps you keep track of the people, information and activities that help to manage your health.

You can share your notebook with healthcare providers or keep it as a personal record. It’s your health notebook and how you use it is completely up to you.

My Health Notebook does not replace My Health Record or health records made by your doctor or healthcare provider. Rather, it provides a way for you to record things that matter to you about your health in a way that will make them easy to find when you need them.

 

What’s in My Health Notebook?

The notebook has three parts:

  1. General healthcare information including healthcare rights; top tips for safe health care; who’s who in health care; visiting a healthcare provider; going to hospital; and travelling for treatment and care.
  2. Space to keep useful health details including healthcare providers; support services; medications; dental health; screening tests and checks; vaccinations; and appointments.
  3. Space to make personal notes.

 

Where can I get My Health Notebook?

My Health Notebook will be available across the Western NSW PHN region from late October 2021.
