Bupa and the Aged Care Royal Commission

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established by the Governor General in October 2018.

Its purpose is to enquire publicly into the quality of care provided in residential and home aged care to senior Australians and will also include young Australians with disabilities living in residential aged care settings. It is guided by the Terms of Reference, which can be found on the Royal Commission website.

Organisations and members of the public can make a submission to the Royal Commission by following the directions outlined on the submissions page of the Royal Commission website.

We welcome the work of the Royal Commission and are actively contributing to the process.

We are proud of the hard work and commitment of our people working in our care homes. Where Bupa has not met the standards we set for ourselves, and the standards our communities expect, we are committed to putting things right as soon as possible.

We are also committed to assisting the Royal Commission to identify opportunities through which the Australian aged care sector can be improved, for the benefit of all Australians.
