Adaptation of the Charter

The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights can, if needed, be adapted to meet the specific needs of the patient population, state, territory, local district or health service organisation. To get permission, request the InDesign files for adaptation of resources, by contacting the Partnering with Consumers team at partneringwithconsumers@safetyandquality.gov.au

All adaptations need to include the seven original rights.
