Health Legislation Amendment (Conscientious Objection) Bill 2022.

Aug 17, 2022 | Advocacy, News, Parliament

This is a public hospital. Patients do not always receive a choice in their provider, yet they are taken to hospitals which do not provide the health care they may require.

This bill is not about the right of doctors to conscientiously object. This right is maintained. It is about the policy of these public hospitals. Doctors who want to offer choice are being denied this choice. It is my understanding that there are nurses and doctors in these hospitals who would like to offer family planning but are unable to because of hospital policy. If these hospitals want to be publicly funded by the taxpayer, they must offer the full range of health services. The right of the doctor to refuse on the basis of conscientious objection is not affected. I will commend this bill to the house.
