Parent submission re: potential sale of Australian Hearing

Dear Parents and Interested Parties, 

As you may be aware, in the May 2014 Budget, the Federal Government announced a scoping study into the potential privatisation of Australian Hearing.
As a result, PODC and two other parent organisations, Aussie Deaf Kids and Canberra Deaf Children’s Association, have responded with a submission outlining the risks to Australian Hearing’s paediatric clients of the service is sold off. It is our considered belief that the current Hearing Services model best meets the interests of deaf children and their families and the potential privatisation of Australian Hearing should not proceed.
