Our Vision: High quality, sustainable, home and community health services


Apr 29, 2016

A settlement has been reached that will result in home support workers being paid for their travel time between visits and also receive a standard rate for travel reimbursement.  It has also resulted in an independent review of home support services by the Director-General's reference group which has made 15 recommendations.  These support more person-centred services, and also what was agreed in the Settlement Agreement:  regularisation of the workforce and financial sustainability for the home support sector.
