The Code (The HDC Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights Regulation 1996) gives “rights” to all consumers, and places “duties” (obligations) on people and organisations providing services.
It covers a wide range of providers (whether public or private). The Commissioner’s jurisdiction is restricted to the quality of care; it does not cover issues of funding or entitlement to service.
