Murrumbidgee Aged Care Consortium 

The Murrumbidgee Primary Health Network Aged Care Consortium provides a forum for key stakeholders from health, social and community sectors to improve coordination and equitable access to timely and appropriate care for the older person and their carers.

The Murrumbidgee Aged Care Consortium is working towards achieving a number of objectives:

  • Support system reform through development of strategies which focus on improving coordination and address service gaps in aged care

  • Development of strategies to assist clients, carers and providers to navigate the aged care system

  • Support professional development opportunities for those working in aged care, encouraging inter professional and cross sector approaches

  • Identify opportunities for joint initiatives and work together on joint funding opportunities when available

  • Ensure the Murrumbidgee Aged Care Consortium and any initiatives of the Consortium are evaluated

  • Ensure the Murrumbidgee Aged Care Consortium positive outcomes are disseminated particularly throughout the Murrumbidgee region
