ANMF: Monash aged care protest sets precedent for sell offs

The ANMF has stated the protests in Monash have set a higher level of accountability for the ANMF_logoVictorian Government as it proposes to sell off public owned aged care residences.

Many involved in the protests against the sale of aged care in Monash also oppose the further sell off of public owned aged care.

The public aged care sector is already too small to maintain the balance of ownership required to maintain quality standards within the industry.  The proposed sell off of more residences by the Napthine Government puts quality benchmarks and staffing standards at greater risk.  This will even have more impact in an industry that is already in crisis Australia wide.
