Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights (brochure)
The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights was developed by the Commission in 2007 and 2008. The charter was developed with extensive and widespread consultation and specifies the key rights of patients and consumers when seeking or receiving healthcare services. In July 2008, Australian Health Ministers endorsed the charter as the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights for use across the country.
The Charter applies to all health settings anywhere in Australia, including public hospitals, private hospitals, general practice and other community environments. It allows patients, consumers, families, carers and service providers to have a common understanding of the rights of people receiving health care.
Heathcote Health has adopted the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights and encourages all consumers to familiarise themselves with the principles in the charter. Please click on above link to view the Charter Brochure or contact us on 5431 0900 to request a copy.
