Your rights as a consumer of health services
The Health and Disability Commissioner (HDC) Code of Rights outlines your rights as a consumer of health services. The HDC has recently released videos that explain these and they can be found here.
Before making a complaint
If you are unhappy with the quality of a practitioner’s service or conduct, your first option might be discussing the matter directly with the practitioner or the relevant practice or hospital. If you feel this is not appropriate, or doing so does not resolve the issue, you may wish to consider contacting the Nationwide Health and Disability Advocacy Service (the Advocacy Service) for advice. You can contact the Advocacy Service via their website or by calling 0800 555 050.
