Your Rights and Responsibilities

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights sets out the fundamental principles of healthcare. You can download a copy of the charter here.

The charter is available to everyone in the healthcare system. It allows patients, consumers, families, carers and providers to share an understanding of the rights of people receiving health care.

Patients, consumers, healthcare providers and health service organisations all have an important part to play in achieving healthcare rights and contributing to a safe and high-quality healthcare system.
