All SVHA facilities operate under By-laws approved by the St Vincent’s Health Australia Board. The By-laws apply to all Accredited Practitioners and are an integral part of the clinical governance system at SVHA. This system supports and facilitates a quality health service that delivers safe care:

The By-laws:

  • establish the principles applying to the accreditation and defining scope of practice of practitioners at SVHA
  • govern the relationship of SVHA with its accredited practitioners
  • set out rules for the conduct of accredited practitioners at SVHA facilities
  • outline the obligations on accredited practitioners in relation to the safety and the quality of care of patients.

Better and fairer care. Always.

In a rapidly transforming world, St Vincent's has created a refreshed vision and strategy to help shape Australia's health and aged care future.
