Australian Government Department of Health: Message to the Aged Care Sector

Transition of the department’s aged care web content

All current aged care website content will move to the department’s new site – health.gov.au – late on 22 January 2020. The new aged care content is directed at our workforce, including assessors, providers and health professionals. My Aged Care remains our primary source of information for consumers.

Health’s new website launched in July 2019, following a comprehensive engagement process with stakeholders. Transitioning aged care content to health.gov.au will improve the experience of all users through:

  • more intuitive navigation
  • a comprehensive search function
  • content written in plain English
  • better analytics to help us understand users and continue to respond to their needs.

How does this affect you?

After Wednesday 22 January we will redirect all old URLs to their equivalent ones on health.gov.au to minimise the impact on users who access the site via bookmarks, links or search engines.

In mid-2020, the old site will be decommissioned and a broad brush redirect will be applied from agedcare.health.gov.au to health.gov.au/aged-care.

Please note that saved links to documents on the old site – as opposed to pages – won’t work after 22 January.

What do you need to do?

From 23 January, and over the next few weeks, search the new website to find the content you want to link to and update your links.

The website is a work in progress, use this form to provide feedback on how we can continue to improve the website.
