We very much regret that private correspondence from our organisation has been published without our consent.

We would like to reassure the community that we take compliance with personal privacy obligations very seriously. We have not and would not canvass in the media matters related to an Elder’s medical treatment.

While there is no doubt the aged care and health care sectors are under enormous strain at this time, in conjunction with our health and medical partners, we continue to strive to ensure that all Elders receive the medical treatment that they want and need.

We greatly appreciate the support of our health partners including Alfred Health, Cabrini and Ramsay Health Care.
We will not be commenting further on this issue. Our focus remains on ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our Elders, our staff and the community.
