Manage who can access restricted documents in your record with a Limited Document Access Code (LDAC)
Restricted documents are records that you have set to Restricted Access.
If you set a Limited Document Access Code, healthcare provider organisations you have given the code to will be able to view restricted documents.
Once they have used the code, they will be listed in your provider access list with Restricted Access to your record.
If you have given your healthcare provider Restricted Access in the Access by Healthcare Provider section of your record, they will be able to see your documents even without a limited document access code.
Healthcare providers who have accessed your record before a code has been set will continue to have access.
A limited document access code lasts for three years. If the healthcare provider has not accessed your My Health Record for three years, you will need to give them your code to gain access.
For example, if you see your GP after more than three years, you will need to give them your code again to access your restricted documents.
