The Minister for Aged Care, The Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP, released a statement on 18 April 2018 announcing the establishment of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. The statement can be found here.
The Commission will be an independent aged care regulatory body, responsible for the approval, accreditation, assessment, monitoring, compliance and complaints management for all Australian Government subsidised aged care providers.
It will commence operations on 1 January 2019 and will initially bring together the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency and the Aged Care Complaints Commissioner.
We will continue to provide updates about the establishment of the Commission on this page. If you'd like to receive updates in the future, please subscribe to our website here. More information will likely become available after the release of Budget 2018-19, so be sure to have a look at the Budget page.
