    Any Diagnostic Imaging has to be kept for 5 years after last image or report was made.

    And that's only if they don't get lost.

    Yeh I got it wrong it's 7 years for doctors and for hospitals it's 25 years or archived forever for specific reasons.

    It's not 25 years in QLD or SA. Does any state keep them for that long? sure is a long time I would hate to work in their records department.

    I know in QLD Research Records are to be kept for 15 years from the last completion of clinical research or trial. Some Mental Health Records have to be kept for 85 years from the patient’s date of birth.

    But no way in QLD do normal records have to be kept for 25 years. I wish that was the case then I would still be able to get a copy of my records.

    For minors, it's messy. They have to be kept for 10 year starting from the patients 18th birthday but it all so has to be 10 years after they were a patient or last seen in A/E or the last medico-legal case.
