Has a concern been raised about you?

If you are a registered health practitioner, and a concern has been raised about your health, conduct or performance, we have information to help you understand what to expect, including:

  • the role of National Boards and Ahpra in managing concerns
  • the notifications process, and
  • possible outcomes.

We recognise that having a concern raised about you can be stressful. Remember to take care of yourself and utilise any support services you need to as well as talking  to your friends, family or colleagues.

We encourage you to use the independent practitioner support services and other support services that are available.

Please explore the information relating to notifications and our process below.
