Regulated Health Professions

How to Complain About a Health Professional

Doctors, nurses and other health professionals are members of regulated professions. We can’t investigate complaints about individual members of these professions, but we can investigate complaints about the bodies that license, regulate and oversee them.

Each regulated profession has a process to hear complaints about their members’ conduct and practice.

If you aren’t happy with the outcome of a complaint about a health professional to their regulator, you can request a review by the Health Professions Review Board.
