Hall & Prior Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior and members of our management team recently hosted the Hon. Julie Collins MP, Shadow Minister for Ageing and Mental Health. They met on Monday, August 27 at their West Perth head office for a briefing on issues affecting aged care.


A broad range of topics were discussed at the briefing session, including:

  • The need to ensure that aged care funding meets the needs of  the people we care for in our homes
  • A total endorsement of the current Government’s reforms to raise the bar regarding quality standards
  • The need to introduce certainty of funding to the sector to encourage investment and enable the industry to deliver the necessary number of residential aged care beds over the next decade
  • The importance of the Government supporting vocational training providers and encouraging partnership with industry to ensure availability of a highly trained workforce
  • A review of funding for the sector, especially to ensure residents with limited means get appropriately supported by the Government, so they have access to quality aged care.

At the conclusion of the meeting, Mr Prior said “it was great opportunity for Hall & Prior to engage with a federal MP who is, and will continue to be influential in shaping aged care policy”.
