Glenna Parker, who has been consulting as an assessor with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission for the past four years, has been appointed Chief Clinical Officer at Anglicare Sydney.
Ms Parker will be responsible for quality and clinical governance across all of Anglicare’s operations of residential aged care, retirement living and home care.
“Ms Parker brings a wealth of clinical, regulatory, executive, and practical health and aged care experience to Anglicare,” said Grant Millard, CEO of Anglicare Sydney, who we reported in Tuesday’s The Weekly Source is to retire.
Before taking on the role at the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission, Ms Parker was Ramsay Health Care’s National Clinical Governance Manager. She has also been the Director of Clinical Services for a private hospital in Victoria and worked as a nurse assessor for the Victorian Department of Health.
“Ms Parker’s appointment means Anglicare’s residents, clients, staff, and families can have assurance that someone with strong clinical rigour, deep knowledge of health and aged care issues, and a thorough understanding of the regulatory process will be serving them.
“With the recommendations from the Aged Care Royal Commission being implemented by government, and a new Aged Care Act to be developed over the next four years, Ms Parker’s expertise are timely and valuable additions for us and those we serve,” added Mr Millard.
