Greens on top in pre-election aged care scorecard
The Australian Aged Care Collaboration (AACC) has launched an aged care scorecard, tracking the commitments made by Labor, the Coalition, and the Greens on delivering Royal Commission reforms.
The scorecard measures whether each party has committed to a list of six reforms – fully, substantially, partially, or not at all. The Greens come out on top, with four policies receiving their full commitment and two their partial commitment, while Labor has fully committed to four with no commitment on two, and the Coalition has fully committed to only one policy with partial commitments on three more and no commitment on the remaining two.
Nicole Hornsby, Executive Director, Baptist Care Australia and Director, Australian Aged Care Collaboration, says that whoever wins Saturday’s election must be held accountable on aged care.
“The scorecard reflects the policy commitments of the key parties on our campaign asks. It shows each major party’s stance at a glance, making it easier to understand where they stand.
