Our Leadership & Governance


All SVHA facilities operate under By-laws approved by the St Vincent’s Health Australia Board.

The By-laws apply to all Accredited Practitioners and are an integral part of the clinical governance system at SVHA. This system supports and facilitates a quality health service that delivers safe care. 

The By-laws:

Establish the principles applying to the accreditation and defining scope of practice of practitioners at SVHA

Govern the relationship of SVHA with its accredited practitioners

Set out rules for the conduct of accredited practitioners at SVHA facilities

Outline the obligations on accredited practitioners in relation to the safety and the quality of care of patients.

Better and fairer care. Always.

In a rapidly transforming world, St Vincent's has created a refreshed vision and strategy to help shape Australia's health and aged care future.
