Consumers at the centre of health
in South Australia

A review of Oakden Older Persons Mental Health Service has delivered a damning report, criticising the quality and nature of care provided and recommending the closure of the service.

The review team made six sets of recommendations covering: models of care; staffing; quality and safety; and restrictive practices.

HCA calls on SA Health to publicly report  progress on implementing the review’s recommendations.

All involved must genuinely commit to building a health system that is genuinely consumer-centred and puts the needs of health consumers first.

Ongoing transparency, and accountability, is crucial. 

The review report, frequently asked questions and goverment response to the review recommendations are available here.

HCA's media release is available here.
