Health Ministers are seeking your comments on a number of potential reforms to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (the National Law).
The National Law established the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for health professions, which has been in operation since 2010. The scheme now regulates more than 700,000 health practitioners and ensures that only health practitioners who are suitably trained and qualified to practise in a competent and ethical manner are registered. The scheme is overseen by the Council of Australian Governments Health Council, which comprises health ministers from every state and territory and the Commonwealth.
To understand more about the National Law and to provide your comments on amendments to it, visit Progressing reforms to the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law on the COAG Health Council website.
All submissions are due by midnight Wednesday 31 October 2018 using the above link.
Responses to this consultation paper will inform the next stage of reforms requested by health ministers.
Feedback captured in this consultation will also inform ministers of any outstanding issues or future opportunities for reform.
