Protecting your practice

Dealing with an incident or claim is stressful. 

Our team is here to support you through the process so you can keep on practising with confidence.

Report a matter

We're here to support you. Please contact us about any matter that could result in a complaint, claim, investigation (e.g. Coroner, Medicare), employment dispute or disciplinary matter as soon as possible by calling 1800 011 255 or completing our Notification of Incident Form.

Contacting us early enables us to provide you with the most appropriate support and assistance.
