Show close time for other time zones
In the 2021-22 Budget, the Australian Government committed $37.3 million for 4 years (2021-22 to 2024-25) to expand the Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care Measure from 11 pilot PHN sites to a national program including all 31 PHN sites.
Of the total funding, $34.2 million will be provided to PHNs to develop innovative and targeted programs, at the local level, to improve awareness of local palliative care options and to coordinate and facilitate access to palliative care services at home.
PHN sites joining the GCfAHPC program will receive $150,000 in the first year (2021-22) to employ up to 1 full time equivalent person (FTE) to plan and develop their activities. From 2022-23, these PHNs will receive $300,000 per year for three years, until 2024-25, to employ up to 2 FTE to implement these activities. Existing GCfAHPC PHNs will continue to receive $300,000 per year to employ up to 2 FTE to further build on and expand the activities they have been implementing under the Measure.
