The NSW Nurses’ Association, in association with the Australian Nursing Federation, wants nurses and their supporters to rally outside the Productivity Commission Hearings to let them know they must put the CARE in the “Caring for Older Australians” final report.

There will be two events on Monday 28th March in Sydney.

8.00am – 10.00am: Morning rally with guest speakers as the Commissioner’s arrive to start the Hearings.
12.30pm – 1.30pm: Lunchtime Rally with guest speakers.

Location: Medina on Crown, 259 Crown Street, Surry Hills

Interested people can also register to observe the day’s Hearings from the public gallery here .For more information contact Stella Topaz, at the NSW Nurses’ Association, 02 8595 1234 or stopaz@nswnurses.asn.au

The Australian Nursing Federation is deeply disappointed that the Productivity Commission’s Caring for Older Australians, fails to deliver on quality care by ignoring key workforce issues faced by the aged care sector.

“A failure to recommend any substantial changes to the care received by elderly residents’ means the Productivity Commission has not upheld the key objectives of the report. Australians who rely on the aged care sector should be very concerned,” said ANF federal secretary Lee Thomas.
