Your Rights & Responsibilities

London Health Sciences Centre’s Mental Health Care programs operate under the Ontario Mental Health Act and the Ontario Public Hospitals Act. Some patients/clients come to the hospital on a voluntary basis, others require certification or involuntary hospitalization, and some come through the forensic system. If you are here involuntarily, the Patient Rights Advisor will contact you to answer your questions and advise you of your rights.


Patients have the right to ask questions and express concerns about hospital health care and services, without fear of reprisal.
