Privacy and dignity and single sex accommodation plan

Privacy dignity respect

As a patient using our services, you have the right to receive high quality care that is safe, effective and respects your privacy and dignity. We are committed to providing every patient with same sex accommodation because we know this helps to safeguard your privacy and dignity when you are at your most vulnerable.

We have the necessary facilities, resources and culture to ensure that patients who are admitted to our hospitals will only share the room where they sleep with members of the same sex, and same sex toilets, washrooms and showers will be adjacent to their sleeping area or bay, except where it is in the patient's overall best interest or reflects their personal choice.
