Since its introduction in 1998, the Human Rights Act has had a profound impact on healthcare.  It has afforded to patients and their families a means to challenge not only the quality of care received, but also decisions made in respect of care and policies operated by healthcare providers whether public or private.

The impact of the Act continues to be felt from the narrative verdicts issuing from a Coroner’s Inquest to decisions made in respect of access to treatments and services by patients.

O’Reilly Stewart Healthcare’s lawyers have solid, relevant experience and knowledge in successfully fighting for and enforcing your human rights in healthcare whether by way of civil litigation, coronial investigation or judicial review.
