Annual Report 2009-10 tabled in Parliament

30 November 2010


The Commission’s Annual Report 2009-10 was tabled in Parliament today.

For the fifth consecutive year, the number of inquiries and written complaints that were received by the Commission increased.

In addition, the environment in which the Commission works changed significantly on 1 July 2010 when the national registration scheme for health practitioners started. The Commission is working effectively with its co-regulators, the health professional councils in NSW. The changes, which are summarised in chapter 5 of the report, are expected to improve the handling of complaints in future.

An electronic copy of the report can be accessed on the Commission’s website.
