From the CEO's desk
A nicely-timed publication has hit my desk in the past 24 hours from UNSW Canberra's Public Service Research Group about unregistered NDIS providers and why people use them. Lead author Helen Dickinson, Professor of Public Service Research at UNSW Canberra, and her team, interviewed 30 NDIS recipients and plan nominees who purchased supports from unregistered providers, publishing the results yesterday. It's great to hear some of the issues discussed through the voice of the consumer.
SARRAH regularly hears from our rural members about the significant costs to become a registered NDIS provider, including examples where business owners have had to remortgage their house to cover the cost of registration. Is it any wonder, then, that some allied health professionals, especially those operating small practices with mixed clientele, opt not to register? In a rural setting, the success of your business will be built on the relationships you have with your community and your professional network, and ensuring the quality of your service is a pivotal part of your success. It is likely that NDIS clients will come to you because of the existing relationship they have with you, and not because you are a registered NDIS provider.
This is supported by the findings of the report. With regard to allied health services, NDIS clients understood that allied health professionals were regulated through their respective registration boards, and that NDIS registration was not a guarantee of a higher quality service. One example described a case in which a client purchased services from a specialist physiotherapist at a higher rate than that prescribed in the NDIS pricing guide because they had the specific skills required to manage their complex condition. In this instance, requiring the client to seek therapies exclusively from NDIS registered services would only constrain consumer choice and control, with no guarantee of better quality services.
In the rural and remote context, requiring allied health services to be registered NDIS providers will negatively impact access to services in an already underserviced area. I do not mean to suggest that registered NDIS providers operating in rural and remote settings are of any less quality than their non-registered colleagues, nor vice versa. However NDIS clients should have the discretion to choose their own service providers, and in the rural context this may be the register NDIS provider, the local practice owner or one with specialist skills located in a regional or metropolitan city - or even a combination of these if only the systemic structures were in place to support collaboration and peer networking (as exists, for example, for medical professionals through rural clinical training schools).
Allied health professionals frequently operate across a number of regulatory systems. It would be great to see some reduction in the red tape so that quality and safety mechanisms were common across these frameworks, with affordable compliance requirements. Maybe then we would see more clarity and consistency around differential pricing for allied health services, and less confusion for clients.
And as this is our last edition of Connected for 2022, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members and friends for your continued support of SARRAH. Given we do not receive peak body funding, your support and input to our work is vital if the voice of rural and remote allied health is to be heard by decision-makers. We've had a great year and continue to be invited to participate in stakeholder consultations at the highest levels - this would not be possible without your support. It is also a testament to the work of our Director Policy and Strategy Allan Groth, and I thank him for his tireless efforts throughout 2022 to ensure SARRAH's submissions are of the highest quality and get to the right people, and for making our newsletter such an informative and highly-regarded read.
May you all have a great holiday season, and I hope you have an opportunity to detach and recharge with loved ones. I look forward to working with you in 2023.
The STAY Project is exploring professional development and support strategies that will strengthen the allied health workforce in the Loddon Mallee region of Victoria. In this episode of Talking for Purpose, Sarah Gallagher from Bendigo Health describes the intitaive in more detail.

proud Eastern Arrernte man Ryley Park, currently studying a Bachelor of Speech Pathology, on being recognised as a future leader in Indigenous Health, at the recent National Indigenous Allied Health Awards
The Future Leader in Indigenous Health is awarded to a current IAHA Full Member (Student) enrolled in an entry level allied health degree who demonstrate leadership capabilities, a commitment to their studies and leadership journey and are an inspirational role model for other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Here Ryley is being presented his award by our own SARRAH CEO, Cath Maloney.
The Strengthening Medicare Taskforce is due to release its report – possibly before Christmas.
Minister Mark Butler certainly makes it clear that the focus will be on medical general practice. From an interview he had on Radio National (RN Breakfast) with Patricia Karvelas on 14 December 2022:
So we've got no higher priority in the health portfolio than rebuilding general practice, because if general practice continues to decline and we see the declines in the bulk-billing rates, that's going to reverberate right through the health system. Health Ministers at a state level tell me they're deeply concerned about this, because they know the impact it's having on their on their hospital system. People are turning up to the emergency department who could quite adequately be cared for in the community, but they can't find a GP to see. So we will have more to say. As I said in the election campaign, we wanted to work with the sector to find the best way to invest that money. It's been a terrific process, I've chaired it, so I’ve been involved directly in those discussions with the College, the AMA, nursing groups and others. We're close to delivering our report and we’ll action that report in the Budget next year.
Few would argue the shift to primary health care has such wide support now that we may actually see the initial steps taken during in the Government’s Election commitments carry through to something approaching a structural shift. The question remains, however, whether allied health services will be heard, seen or treated as anything more than an adjunct to medical general practice and becomes something more than ”other”.
Some interesting and bi-lateral, joint activity in NSW – Commonwealth (Labor) and State (Coalition) regional health Ministers working together..
Commonwealth Minister Emma McBride and NSW Minister Bronnie Taylor were part of a joint Regional Health Forum held in Tamworth. Both are Ministers for regional health and for mental health in their respective jurisdictions. They engaged , together, with local health professionals and issued a communique. This may be a very positive sign of the collaborative approach we’ve increasingly heard about from National Cabinet and Health Ministers, and is a critically important and welcome development if so. We’ve heard, unsurprisingly that the meeting was strongly medical focussed, but at least one local allied health service provided took part and contributed. Positive, small steps.
Last week we flagged the release of the Grattan report - A new Medicare: strengthening general practice. There’s a useful summary of the recommendations by hospitalhealth.com.au.
And John Menadue
came out arguing for real health reform - Medicare reform must not just be about more money to do the same things the same way
Who’s John Menadue? He is presently Founder and Editor in Chief of an online newsletter called Pearls and Irritations
. He has considerable insight to the nature of government and reform, as he was formerly Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
The AIHW has released four interesting updates:
The AIHW Burden of Disease Report – which showed for the first time in two decades there has been an increase in ill health experienced by Australians. The Study measures the years of healthy life lost by Australians by converting the impact of diseases and injuries to disability-adjusted life years (DALY), which include both the impact of living with poor health (the non-fatal burden of disease) and dying prematurely (fatal burden).
National Preventive Health Strategy 2021–30: burden of disease targets – which (like the Strategy itself) aims to address the wider determinants of health, promote health equity and decrease the overall burden of disease. The report includes data used to monitor 3 of the 6 burden of disease specific targets in the Strategy.
- In response, the AMA were quick to come out with a response calling for more health funding, to go to GPs but also to allow for “expanding the number of nurses and allied health services available in general practices”. Again, the message seems to be that multidisciplinary, team-based or coordinated care (all good things) is only achievable through allied health practitioners working to or within a medical general practice.
- The large majority of allied health practitioners who work in primary health care do not provide services through a GP practice. Most are independent practitioners and MBS subsidised services, referred by a GP, do not necessarily make up a substantial portion of their work.
- The government is keen to support medical General Practice. However, to date there has been very little public discussion or testing of how proposed arrangements would work – certainly not against the reality of primary health care service provision as it exists, or how such an approach would enable better, more coordinated care for people (noting it certainly could and should) while managing the risks to existing allied health service capacity and access – especially in rural and remote Australia. These are fundamental design and funding issue, not minor implementation details.
Use of chronic disease management and allied health Medicare services – which we hope to examine in detail but note one Figure from the report (while not portraying the underlying problem of lack of MBS support for allied health care) shows rural and remote disadvantaged. Given the older age profile and higher rates of chronic disease among the rural population, subsidised access to AHP services should be higher generally but for other factors – like the lack of workforce supply.
AIHW: Australia's Disability Strategy - a new website that reports on the Outcomes framework of Australia's Disability Strategy 2021-2031 (the Strategy). It reports available data for priorities that people with disability have said need to improve if Australia is to be more inclusive.
- the proportion of the first 25 years lived in full health will increase by at least 2 percentage points by 2030
- the proportion of the first 0–4 years of life lived in full health will increase by at least 3.5 percentage points by 2030
- Australians have at least an additional 2 years of life lived in full health by 2030.
- Estimates for the remaining 3 indicators involve analysis at subnational level, which was not in the scope of the current report. These targets are:
- Australians in the 2 lowest socioeconomic groups will have at least an additional 3 years of life lived in full health by 2030
- Australians in regional and remote areas will have at least an additional 3 years of life lived in full health by 2030
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will have at least an additional 3 years of life lived in full health by 2030.
Better Access – the evaluation report - the final report of an independent evaluation of the Better Access to Psychiatrists, Psychologists and General Practitioners through the Medicare Benefits Schedule initiative (Better Access), undertaken by the University of Melbourne. (Note – Better Access also included eligible OTs and Social Workers). The media release from Minister Butler anticipated much of the criticism that has since come out against the decision. In a press conference on the issue the Minister said “The evaluation finds that the location of provider services - so where particularly psychology clinics set up their operations - contributes to poor access by Australians living and living in rural areas, and also lower socioeconomic areas in our major cities. …. The evaluation found that all of the additional services went to existing patients, and that the number of new patients who are able to get into the system and get access to psychology service actually declined
by 7% over the course of that period. It also found that all of the growth - all of the growth – in services went to the highest income Australians, with the lowest income Australians actually receiving fewer services over this period than they had before the introduction of the additional 10.”
Unregistered NDIS providers - Thank you to SARRAH 2020 Squawk Award winner, Dr Kim Bulkeley, for sending through the report Unregistered NDIS providers are in the firing line – but lots of participants have good reasons for using them (theconversation.com) – which is covered in this week’s CEO update.
The WA Government announced over $2.5M to help disability service providers with workforce attraction and retention: extended to 13 disability service providers across Western Australia to help address workforce challenges in the sector. Initiatives funded include:
More information on the Fund can be found here.
- attracting allied health therapists looking to transition from the aged care sector and enhance their skill levels to work in the disability sector; (what does this say about allied health in aged care under the Commonwealth reform agenda?)
- supporting disability support workers in achieving a formal qualification through the Recognition of Prior Learning process; and
- growing the employment of Aboriginal disability support workers through skills training and workplace mentoring to provide culturally appropriate disability support services.
The Commonwealth government announced a National Centre to explore innovative community-led solutions to address disadvantage
The Albanese Labor Government will establish a National Centre for Place-Based Collaboration (Nexus Centre) to explore and enhance community-led solutions in addressing social complex problems and entrenched disadvantage. The Centre is to consult extensively with stakeholders and designing community supports. The media release said “ Place-based solutions have an evidence base in generating positive outcomes in addressing complex social needs and entrenched disadvantage because the solutions are community-designed and led. The National Centre is envisaged to be an independent, non-government entity that will work with governments, communities and other stakeholders to amplify the benefits of place-based initiatives.”
The Nexus Centre is intended to support existing and emerging place-based initiatives around Australia, with a focus on Commonwealth programs and initiatives first, and a plan for scaling up its support over time. A core feature is meant to be shared commitment to a local strategy by communities, governments, service providers and investors, with shared accountability for planning, decision making and results. Watch this space.
