Raise concerns about a patient's health (Ryan's Rule)

Ryan's Rule is a 3 step process to support patients of any age, their families and carers. You can raise concerns if a patient's health condition is getting worse or not improving as expected.

Complaint resolution

The Public Service Act 2008 (the ACT) requires that we publish information in relation to complaints received by Sunshine Coast Health.


Total compliments received: 3,541

Total complaints received: 1,956

  • Complaints resulting in further action *: 858
  • Complaints resulting in no further action: 1098

Complaints acknowledged within 5 days: 100%

Complaints resolved within 35 days: 89%

* As the ACT doesn't define "Number of Complaints resulting in further action", we've defined this as the number of complaints that weren't resolved at front line and required further investigation.
