Client complaints: Important information for massage therapists in Queensland
There have been a number of recent complaints from clients in Queensland about the quality of treatment they are receiving from therapists (Unregistered Health Professionals which includes Massage Therapists).
Most complaints are about the lack of information given by the therapist about the type of therapy they are receiving.
The Queensland Government has information available to massage therapists to use as guidance and to display in their offices.
Please take a look at the links and resources below to help make sure you understand and work within the relevant Code of Conduct, minimise the risks of client complaints and understand the information you should display to your clients.
You can access the QLD Office of the Health Ombudsman's (OHO's) range of FREE brochures and posters advising clients how to make a complaint. Displaying this information in your clinic and being transparent about how clients can make a complaint can actually help clients feel confident that you are professional and understand and abide by the Code of Conduct and want to improve client services and experiences.
To avoid risking losing your provider status, make sure you carefully read through Medibank's Requirments for Recognised Providers. In particular, we've had reports of therapists losing their provider status because their clinical environment does not comply with the 'Facilities' requirements. Other problems include therapists' business structure nor future plans not aligning with the requirements.
