She was speaking at a meeting of Bhartiya Samaj Charitable Trust held on October 13, 2018.
She said that the Commission’s website (www.hdc.og.nz) provides detailed guidelines on
the rights of people when using a health or disability service in New Zealand and how to get more support or make a complaint if you are not happy.
“This free service is available to support and encourage people to take action when they have a concern. The Commission provides assistance to resolve complaints,” she said.
