In my latest article for Business News, I look at the issue of hospital discharge delays for people with disability in the context of Minister Bill Shorten’s recent comments about these being caused by the ‘faceless bureaucrats’ at the NDIA. 

Whilst it looks like Shorten is wanting to make some changes, the most efficient NDIA decision-making and the best hospital discharge processes in the world mean nothing if the person does not have suitable accommodation (with support) to go to. We need genuine engagement on a collaborative cross-government and cross-sector approach that uses a systems lens to identify barriers and solutions to hospital discharge delays for people with disability.
