Health Professions Review Board

The Health Professions Review Board is a group (administrative tribunal) created under the Health Professions Act. Someone who has made a complaint and is not satisfied with the outcome can ask to have the issue reviewed by them.

The Review Board independently reviews certain decisions made by the self-governing colleges of designated health professions. The Review Board monitors the activities of the colleges’ complaints inquiry committees and registration committees. They do this to ensure the committees fulfill their duties in the public interest and as mandated by legislation. The Review Board provides a neutral forum for members of the public as well as for health professionals to resolve issues or seek review of the colleges’ decisions.

The Review Board also helps to improve the health care system and serve the public interest in British Columbia by developing and publishing guidelines and recommendations to assist colleges for registration, inquiry and discipline procedures that are transparent, objective, impartial and fair.
