We are aligning with the Department of Health and Aged Care’s guidelines by adopting the use of Residential Aged Care Homes (RACH) instead of RACF on our newsletters and website.
The RACH Bulletin is a monthly publication produced by GCPHN for aged care providers and RACHs to keep them informed of the latest industry-related news, information and events in our region.
