Official Visitors


Official Visitors are appointed by the NSW Minister for Health to visit people in mental health inpatient facilities in NSW and are available to assist consumers on community treatment orders. Official Visitors are independent from the health system and come from the community from a range of cultural, professional and personal backgrounds. They aim to safeguard standards of treatment and care, and advocate for the rights and dignity of people being treated under the NSW Mental Health Act 2007. They make regular visits to all inpatient psychiatric facilities across NSW, they talk to patients, inspect records and registers, and report on the standard of facilities and services. They liaise with staff about any issues or concerns and report any problems to the Principal Official Visitor and/or the Minister for Health.
