• Mandatory notifications

    If you are concerned that a colleague may not be practising safely and may be putting the public at risk of harm, deciding whether to report them is not easy. It can be a cause of great stress and anxiety. Here we outline what your obligations are under the National Law’s mandatory notification provisions.

    If your concern arises as a doctor who is treating another health practitioner, please see this factsheet: https://avant.org.au/Resources/Public/Mandatory-notifications-for-treating-practitioners/

    If you are concerned about another health practitioner, but you are not in a treating-relationship with them (such as a colleague or employee), please see this factsheet: https://avant.org.au/Resources/Public/Mandatory-notifications-about-health-practitioners/
