Clinical Ethics Service - SESLHD

Clinical ethics is a theory-based discipline, which applies a structured approach and expertise to assist health professionals to identify, analyse and resolve ethical issues.

The South East Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) Clinical Ethics Service is a resource for clinical staff and management across the district. We provide expertise to help healthcare practitioners and management to understand and explore values-based issues in a systematic and reflective way.

The Clinical Ethics Service provides the following services:

  • Ethics education
  • Organisational ethics
  • Clinical case consultation
  • Research


Discussion groups are held monthly for staff, while Clinical Ethics Masterclasses and Forums are open to the broader public. Please email SESLHD-ClinicalEthics@health.nsw.gov.au if you are interested in attending any of these events.
