I agree, and i agree. How can this not be considered "under the covers" if
your information which you know is NOT already electronically recorded, is
suddenly en electronically recorded?
Is this a process of Doctor will electronically submit information to NSW
Health, unless you specifically otherwise tell them not to at the time the
information is collected?
I wonder if we can have OPT-IN payment at checkouts - you know, generally
we all want goods for free, so unless we OPT to pay for them we can walk out?
