Grey Power Press Release- Aged Care Commissioner

Published: Fri 22 Feb 2019 10:24 AM
Grey Power has welcomed the support of media commentator Mark Sainsbury for Grey Power’s long running campaign to have an Aged Care Commissioner appointed.
Grey Power Federation President Mac Welch said, “despite many meetings throughout the country with politicians of all parties and a series of road shows over several years, an Aged Care Commissioner had yet to be appointed and the need was becoming urgent”.
“In the lead up to the last general election we held high level meetings with Labour and Greens and the final report of this tri-partied arrangement stated quite clearly the need for the appointment of an Aged Care Commissioner. The current Minister of Health stated clearly in a pre-election speech, that this office would be created in the first budget of a Labour-led government”.
“We acknowledge the assistance the media have given in the promotion of this appointment as we have put in a lot of hard work over a long period of time. The recent involvement of Mark Sainsbury is appreciated,” he said.
We wait with bated breath to see if the current government keeps its pre-election promise.
