“I’m very proud of my office’s achievements over the last few years including a new website, new user friendly RAD Application form and completely revamped Annual Report.”
“It has been my honour and privilege to serve as ACPC and I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to Minister Richard Colbeck, all the Residential Aged Care Providers, Peak Industry bodies and particularly my team at the ACPC. I was also incredibly fortunate to be part of the Aged Care Financing Authority. As life moves on for us all,” he added.
