The health care complaints commission was created by the state government of NSW to protect the general public health and safety of all citizens who use health services provided by any medical institution and medical provider including but not limited to medical practitioners, medical specialists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, both public and private hospitals, dentists, nurses , nursing homes and retirement villages.
Complaints can be lodged by email by accessing the healthcare complaints commission website www.hccc.gov.au And the commission can organize a conciliation conference and also provide no-cost general medical NOT LEGAL advice as to the merits of your particular matter.
The healthcare complaints commission has the power to make decisions about medical providers including enforcement of professional standards, cancelling or suspending health practitioners licenses, issuing public statements and warnings to negligent practitioners and medical care facilities, and making recommendations to medical institutions to change procedures. The HCCCC cannot award medical negligence claims compensation or any form of damages to an aggrieved person or patient. For compensation in a medical negligence matter see expert litigation lawyers Gerard Malouf and Partners.
Our specialist medical negligence lawyers are willing to act for negligently treated patients or members of the public on a no win no fee basis assisting with investigations to be undertaken by the healthcare complaints commission.
