Thumbs up for re­view

The Northern Star - - NATION -

A ROYAL com­mis­sion into aged care in Aus­tralia has re­ceived the back­ing of lead­ing groups in the sec­tor.

But they don’t want the in­quiry to be used as an ex­cuse for the Fed­eral Govern­ment to de­lay im­por­tant re­forms.

Lead­ing Age Ser­vices Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive Sean Rooney said the royal com­mis­sion must not get in the way of ur­gent changes.

“We must press on with ad­dress­ing key work­force and fund­ing is­sues, and not lose sight of mak­ing the sys­tem bet­ter right now,” he said.

COTA chief ex­ec­u­tive Ian Yates echoed that sen­ti­ment.
