The Commissioners of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety have written to the ‘top 100’ providers of aged care services nationally, requesting providers to voluntarily provide information to the Royal Commission with a view to formulating the Royal Commission’s focus at subsequent hearings.
The request for information is the first step in the Royal Commission’s information gathering process, with the deadline for providing information being 7 January 2019. Other service providers will be asked to submit information at a later date in February 2019.

At the same time, there are responsibilities that attach to providing information, particularly when such information may suggest that appropriate standards of care have not been met.
