Have your say on aged care staffing

SOUTH West residents are urged to have their say on the staffing of Aged Care homes in the region by participating in an online survey or by contributing to the national review of the Aged Care workforce.

Forrest MHR Nola Marino said the issue was a top priority, prompting Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt to commission a comprehensive taskforce to produce Australia’s first aged care workforce strategy by July.

To contribute to the survey, visit consultations.health.gov.au/agedcare-policy-and-regulation/agedcare-workforce-strategy/ Public submissions are open until March 16.
