Poster - My Healthcare Rights by Northern Sydney Local Health District
The Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) Consumer and Patient experience Unit have partnered with the NSLHD Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service to create a unique and culturally appropriate and tailored version of the Australian Charter of Health Care Rights (the Charter).

The NSLHD version of the Charter has been designed using artwork created by NSLHD’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff network group, Muru Dali Gili Gili (path to shine) and language adapted to make meaning of the Charter for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people in our community.
Story of the artwork
The Waraba (turtle) Artist: Peter Shine (Director NSLHD Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service).
The Waraba was chosen as the logo of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service (ATSIHS), Northern Sydney Local Health District because the Waraba represents Resilience, Wisdom and Longevity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the nation. The Waraba sends a message to mob to continue to learn and share the knowledge and wisdom of the oldest surviving cultures in the world.
The Waraba is the skin totem given to the artist and representative of the above story. This artwork has been used with Peter’s permission.
