Changes to mandatory notification requirements
24 Jul 2012
There have been two recent changes to the mandatory notification requirements
that apply to all registered health practitioners, their employers, as well as
tertiary education providers.
As of 1 July 2012, there are four new registered health professions -
practitioners of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, Chinese medicine,
medical radiation and occupational therapy - to whom the existing mandatory
notification requirements under the Health Practitioner Regulation National
Law (NSW) apply.
In addition, any mandatory notification about a health practitioner with a
principal place of practice in NSW is now deemed to be a complaint and will be
assessed by the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission in consultation with the
relevant NSW health professional Council.
