Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency - Help & Tips

Help & Tips

Who is registered?

  • We regulate 16 health professions (listed below). Our role is to manage any potential future risk to the public that individual health practitioners from these professions, may pose. If you have a complaint about a service or fee, or a dispute with a health service provider (such as a hospital, clinic or a health practitioner) you should contact the relevant health care complaints organisation in your state or territory. They also manage complaints about other people working in healthcare that are not registered health practitioners (such as nutritionists, masseuses, naturopaths, homeopaths, dieticians, social workers and speech pathologists.).
