Pre-Budget Submission 2021-22

Palliative Care Australia’s (PCA) 2021-22 Pre-Budget Submission calls on the Australian Government to support funding measures and initiatives that result in robust implementation of the National Palliative Care Strategy 2018 and the recommendations of the PCA KPMG report, Investing to Save: The economics of increased investment in palliative care in Australia.

The submission also outlines measures to support Australia’s mental health, grief and bereavement needs resulting from the current COVID-19 pandemic and future emergencies, as well as improve access to palliative care in aged care through implementation of the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.   

PCA believes that to meet current and future demand for palliative care, further investment is needed and proposes an additional $365 million per year in funding composed of $240 million per year in community-based settings, $50 million per year in hospitals and $75 million per year in residential aged care.
