Deadline for national aged care review pushed out to 29 September

Published on

The Fed Govt has extended the timeframe for the Review of National Aged Care Quality Regulatory Processes by four weeks following a request by its Chair, Ms Kate Carnell.

Announced in April following Oakden, the independent review is looking into the Govt’s aged care quality regulatory processes and had been due to report on 31 August – an ambitious target we thought.

The panel had arranged 39 meetings with key stakeholders and received over 400 public submissions and Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt AM says the review needed more time considering the volume of information.

They will now provide their report to him on 29 September.
