Federal Budget Response: Aged care misses out, again.

Published 30 March 2022

Upon the release of the Federal Budget, Allied Health Professions Australia are distributing a media release detailing our response to the lack of commitment to funding for aged care.

While there were miniscule allocations for allied health in last night’s budget, including small provisions to digital health and interpreter services, which are welcome, most people in need of allied health services have once again been ignored – particularly those in residential aged care.
