Welcome to the Website for the Hospital Appeal Board (HAB) of British Columbia.  This site provides information about the HAB, an independent, quasi-judicial appeal tribunal.

The Appeal Board is established by section 46 of the Hospital Act [RSBC 1996] Chapter 200. The HAB provides medical practitioners with an avenue of appeal from hospital board of management decisions affecting hospital privileges.

This website is intended to provide information on the mandate and appeal process of the HAB.  The Appeal Process section provides information on how to initiate an appeal, access to the HAB Rules and Practice Directives, links to the legislation and other resources that may be helpful.

The Reasons for Decision section provides links to current and past HAB decisions.
