AGED CARE ACT 1997 - SECT 17.4

Consideration of applications

                   In deciding whether the variation is justified in the circumstances, the Secretary must consider:

                     (a)  whether the variation will meet the objectives of the planning process set out in section 12-2; and

                     (b)  the financial viability of the * aged care service to which the allocation being varied relates; and

                     (c)  if the * places have been allocated to meet the needs of a particular group--whether those needs would continue to be met after the variation; and

                     (d)  if the places have been allocated to provide a particular type of * aged care--whether that type of aged care would continue to be provided after the variation; and

                     (e)  if, after the variation, the places would be included in a different aged care service--the financial viability of the aged care service; and

                      (f)  if, after the variation, care provided in respect of the places would be provided at a different location:

                              (i)  the suitability of the premises used, or proposed to be used, to provide care through that aged care service; and

                             (ii)  the proposals for ensuring that care needs are appropriately met for care recipients who are being provided with care in respect of those places; and

                     (g)  any other matters set out in the Allocation Principles.
