Update: HCSCC Charter of Rights June 2011
Part 3 of the Health and Community Services Complaints Act 2004 requires the Health and Community Services Complaints Commissioner to:
- develop a draft HCSCC Charter of Health and Community Services Rights (the HCSCC Charter)
- to consult with interested persons to obtain a wide range of views; and to
- provide the draft HCSCC Charter to the South Australian Minister for Health for approval.
The HCSCC Charter was developed following consultation with service users, carers and health and community service providers in 2010. The Minister for Health tabled the HCSCC Charter of Health and Community Services Rights in the South Australian Parliament on 8 March 2011. On the 23 June 2011, the HCSCC Charter came into effect.
The HCSCC Charter sets out the rights of all people who use most health and community services in South Australia and to the family members, carers and nominees who act on behalf of a person seeking or using a service.
Services include a wide range of health and community services in the public, private and non-government sectors.
