Legislative Assembly for the ACT: Week 8 Hansard (5 August) . . Page.. 3659..


Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is:

The Member will be aware that it is not possible to provide final cost-weighted activity for the 2003-04 financial year within a week or two of the end of the year.

The process of coding medical records and inputting those records into hospital administration systems can delay final annual figures for some weeks from the end of the year.

This information will be provided to the Member as soon as available.

In preliminary unweighted terms, our hospitals reported the highest elective surgery throughput on record in 2003-04. I am waiting for final validation of numbers before releasing the figures.

I have included information reporting cost weighted activity to the end of April 2004 for the Member's information:
