Anglicare Sydney CEO Grant Millard says Ms Parker’s expertise will be a valuable addition for Anglicare, as the government works to implement the recommendations of the aged care royal commission, and a new aged care act in the pipeline.

“Ms Parker’s appointment means Anglicare’s residents, clients, staff, and families can have assurance that someone with strong clinical rigour, deep knowledge of health and aged care issues, and a thorough understanding of the regulatory process will be serving them,” he said.

Ms Parker has previously worked as a nurse assessor for the Victorian health department and has been consulting as an assessor with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission for the last four years.

  1. Well the horse has bolted some time ago with Newmarch House but at least there is some belated recognition that when you are a leading provider of clinical care you need a recognised clinician on the Executive and not another accountant. Aged care is not just a cash cow to fund welfare programs – it needs solid investment from the board and executive team. Let’s see it happen!
