We’ve just updated our guide to health complaints and feedback in the ACT. This guide can help you:

  • decide if you want to give feedback or make a complaint,
  • know who to contact with your feedback or complaint,
  • learn how to share clear, actionable feedback,
  • find advice and support, and
  • work out what is the best action for your individual circumstances.

The updated guide now includes information about the new Code of Conduct for Health Care Workers as well as updates to several links and contacts. We encourage organisations to share the guide in their newsletter or on social media – contact us if you would like further information.
