Health—medical malpractice claims

(Question No 1714)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 27 September 2007:

(1) What is the number of active or open claims for compensation to victims of (a) accidents or injury and (b) medical negligence within the ACT health care system;

(2) What is the number of active or open medical malpractice claims within the ACT health care system.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The number of active or open claims within the ACT public health care system is 462 in total. This figure includes all ACT public health matters that have had a contingent liability placed upon them. It is not possible in a reasonable amount of time to breakdown the figures into medical negligence related claims and other categories as requested.

The above numbers do not differentiate between actual claims and potential claims. The definition of a claim is used as an umbrella term to include claims that have materialized and potential claims following from incidents reported through the public health system.

Health—workers compensation claims

(Question No 1715)

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 27 September 2007:

(1) What is the number of active or open workers compensation claims within the ACT health care system;

(2) How much did the ACT Government pay in workers compensation to employees of ACT Health during (a) 2000-01, (b) 2001-02, (c) 2002-03, (d) 2003-04, (e) 2004-05, (f) 2005-06 and (g) 2006-07.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
