Aphra's Whistleblower Hotline

Ahpra, the Agency Management Committee and National Boards are committed to ensuring that the National Law is administered efficiently and with integrity.  Ahpra’s Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower) Policy encourages any person who has a serious and legitimate concern about possible improper conduct or corruption in the administration of the National Law to disclose that concern and have it properly dealt with. Ahpra, the Agency Management Committee and National Boards recognise the value and importance of Ahpra staff members, Board and Committee members, contractors, and other people who perform functions under the National Law, as well as members of the public disclosing concerns about improper conduct, and are committed to supporting people who make legitimate disclosures.

The Whistleblower Hotline is a channel for a person to raise concerns about improper conduct in the workplace that concerns Ahpra, the Agency Management Committee or any National Board or Committee.

Improper conduct includes an Ahpra staff member, contractor or Board or Committee member behaving in a way that may constitute:

  • Breach of law or Regulatory requirements
  • Fraud
  • Theft
  • Bribery & Corruption
  • Abuse of power or influence
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Policy breach including breach of financial delegation or misuse of Ahpra resources
  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Breach of work health and safety  
  • Any other improper conduct including unethical behaviour, or any other concerns you feel you cannot raise internally, or which have been reported internally but which you feel have not been resolved appropriately.

Should you choose to do so, your disclosure can be lodged anonymously. However, it is easier for Ahpra to protect you and for the matter to be investigated if you do provide your details and authorise Deloitte to pass them on, particularly if Ahpra needs further information.

Note also that AHPRA's Whistleblower Hotline does not replace internal reporting mechanisms which are always available and which Ahpra encourages you to consider using. However, this is an alternative reporting mechanism which is available to you, particularly if you’re concerned about anonymity and would not otherwise feel comfortable reporting improper conduct.
