Service Governance

Southcare is audited by both the State and Federal Governments to ensure compliance with the Aged Care and Quality Standards Southcare was last audited in 2014 and 2016 respectively by both Governments and fully met all requirements to the standards of these independent audits. Southcare’s Financial Counselling service was also audited in 2014 and we are pleased to report that we also met all the requirements of that audit. Furthermore, Southcare’s financial records are audited by an external auditor every year. The results of these audits are published in our Annual Report.

The Southcare Quality Committee is responsible for providing a collaborative approach to quality management , compliance, customer satisfaction and best practice across the organisation.
