Charter of Healthcare Rights
The Australian government holds that patients deserve to receive high quality health care. As part of international human rights treaties, Australia strives to ensure that its citizens can rely on medical treatment that meets a variety of clear standards.
As a result, it has formed a charter that outlines the roles and rights of both patients and healthcare providers. The rights outlined in this document are crucial to ensuring that patients receive safe, quality care that they can trust.
