Your rights and responsibilities

The Australian Charter of Health Care Rights describes the rights of patients, consumers and other people using the Australian health care system.  These rights are essential to make sure that, wherever and whenever health care is provided, it is of high quality and is safe.

If you are not satisfied with the response to a complaint, you are encouraged to contact the Health Service Commission on 1300 582 113.

Visit the Office of the Health Services Commissoner website.

Advocacy

As a client, you have the right to have an advocate to represent you and your interests. If you wish to have an advocate, we will help you to locate an advocate should you request it. 

An advocate may speak, act or write on behalf and in the interest of you; is a person who is independent of a service provider, organisation or authority; and ensures your rights are being upheld.  An advocate can help you with service assessments, care planning and reviews; consult and negotiate with a service on your behalf; and help if there are changes to your services.

An advocate may be a friend, an associate or a family member.
