Your Rights

Choosing your Doctors

Whenever possible, you have the right to be treated at a hospital of your choice, and to be referred to a medical consultant of your choice.
A patient shall have the right to know the identity and professional status of the individuals providing service to the patient and to know which health professional is primarily responsible for the patient's care. If a patient's health professional refuses to allow another health professional to be called in, or breaches any other provisions of this charter, the patient shall have the right to discharge that health professional and seek the services of another.
