Executive Support Officer

The NHPOPC is an independent, statutory agency established under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law (National Law).

The National Law establishes a national registration and accreditation scheme for health practitioners in 15 professions. For the purpose of implementing this scheme, the National Law establishes the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), the AHPRA Management Committee, the Australian Health Workforce Advisory Council, and the 15 National Health Practitioner Boards.

The role of the NHPOPC is to provide ombudsman, privacy and freedom of information oversight of these entities, particularly AHPRA and the National Health Practitioner Boards.

In order to fulfil these functions, the National Law confers specified jurisdiction on the National Health Practitioner Ombudsman and Privacy Commissioner that is derived from the Ombudsman Act 1976 (Cwlth), the Privacy Act 1988 (Cwlth), and the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cwlth). These Acts are modified by the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Regulation to make them suitable for the national regulatory scheme.
