Public Hospital Charter

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights describes the rights of patients, consumers and other people using the Australian healthcare system. These rights are essential to make sure that, wherever and whenever health care is provided, it is of high quality and is safe.

The Charter was developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare through extensive consultation with the health sector, government and health consumer groups, and adopted by federal and state Health Ministers in July 2008.
