Patient Rights

As our patient you not only have the right to safe and high-quality care but also to be treated with respect, dignity and be included in all decisions and choices about your care.

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights is a guide that explains healthcare rights for you or someone you care for. The charter outlines what every person can expect when receiving care and also provides information on what to do if you have a complaint about your care.  The charter is translated into 19 languages.
