New Aged Care Act: exposure draft consultation survey

Closes 8 Mar 2024

Opened 14 Dec 2023


The Department of Health and Aged Care has released an exposure draft of the new Aged Care Act (new Act) for feedback.

The aim of this survey is to get your feedback on various parts of this exposure draft.

It is anonymous and will take you about 10–15 minutes to complete.

 We want to know whether you think the new Act will:

  • operate as we hope it does
  • create the change you want to see in aged care.

Please take the time to read some information about the exposure draft before you fill in the survey. This will mean you have a better understanding of the draft new Act before you answer the questions.

This survey will close at 7:00 pm AEDT on Friday 8 March 2024.

To find out more about the consultation and the other ways you can get involved, visit the our website and read more about the new Aged Care Act.
