Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights

The Australian Commission on Quality and Safety in Health Care developed a charter of healthcare rights for all people receiving or seeking health care in all settings in Australia.

On 22 July 2008, Australian Health Ministers endorsed the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights and recommended its use nationwide.

The Australian Commission on Quality and Safety in Health Care offers additional resource material for patients, consumers, families, carers, healthcare providers and facilities to support the use of the Charter. The Charter is available for download in pdf format.
