End of arrangements allowing some health practitioners to become registered

16 Feb 2015

On 30 June 2015, grandparenting arrangements will expire which allow some people to register as an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioner.

People working as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals are advised to seek to register now to avoid missing the 30 June deadline.

Only people who are registered with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia can use any of the titles protected under the law*. Penalties exist if you use a protected title, pretend to be registered, or lead someone to believe that you are when you are not registered with the Board.

For more information or to find out whether you are able to register, please contact our customer service line on 1300 419 495, or read more information on our website.

* Protected titles are:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioner 
  • Aboriginal health practitioner, and 
  • Torres Strait Islander health practitioner.
