Aged Care Quality and Safety Royal Commission

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established on 8 October 2018.

It will look into several aspects of aged care including: the quality of aged care services provided to Australians, the extent to which those services meet the needs of the people accessing them, the extent of substandard care being provided, including mistreatment and all forms of abuse, the causes of any systemic failures, and any actions that should be taken in response.

Go the Royal Commission website to find out more about what is being investigated and how to make a submission.
