The Minister of Health and Ageing, Mark Butler, participated in over 30 meetings with concerned citizens throughout the country. The conversations yielded some valuable insights, such as the fact that most Australians state that they would like to remain in their homes and receive services at home if possible. People also want a system that is easy to understand and use, and they want payment procedures to be transparent. Interested in the full report? Just click here.
