Australian healthcare rights

Body Image

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights is about high quality and safe healthcare. It was developed by Australia's leading organisation in quality and safety in healthcare - the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Healthcare.

Our dental practice recognises quality and safety are paramount to your dental care.

We have included this in our web site to help you understand the rights we have using the Australian healthcare system. This particular document of healthcare rights was endorse by each State Health minister in 2008. Prior to this each healthcare state and hospital had its own statement of rights.

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights describes the rights of patients and other people using the Australian health system.

The Charter recognises that people receiving care and people providing care all have important parts to play in achieving healthcare rights. The Charter allows patients, consumers, families, carers and services providing health care to share an understanding of the rights of people receiving health care. This helps everyone to work together towards a safe and high quality health system. A genuine partnership between patients, consumers and providers is important so that everyone achieves the best possible outcomes.
