Public interest disclosures

We encourage disclosures of known or suspected improper conduct involving us. Such conduct may also relate to our employees

Our approach to disclosures falls under the Public Interest Disclosures Act 2012 (Vic).

  • dishonest performance of public functions 

  • an intentional or reckless breach of public trust 

  • a large mismanagement of public resources 

  • a large risk to the health or safety of one or more persons 

  • a large risk to the environment.

This includes: 

  • all our employees, officers, students, and volunteers 

  • our patients, carers, and family members 

  • our contractors 

  • members of the public.
