I call the Honourable Nikki Wagner thank you very much madam Speaker I’m very pleased to support this bill it’s just another example of the work that national did in government now coming to fruition basically it’s a pretty simple amendment it means the Health Act 1956 and it is to modernize the process of managing clinical information it will assist the staff of the National cervical screening program register health professionals and support staff who provide the clinical screening services to women so what it will do is it will give real-time direct access to information from the register and as the previous member has noted it has privacy safeguards around that but to have better sooner and more convenient access to vital screening information will benefit women of course but also the health professionals and the whole health system direct access will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of screening for prevention for investigation and also for treatment and I’d like to thank dr. Shane Richie for explaining us in his speech last night how direct access to information will practically assist GPS and other health professionals and improve the investigation of screening process national supports this bill we are pleased to see our work coming that we did in government coming to fruition and it will have a positive effect on women’s health thank you madam Speaker I call Lewis award to knock me
