Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 9 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 3798..

MS GALLAGHER (continuing):

that we are currently working on resolving and recommendations which we are consulting with staff over. I will have a look at what I can provide the Assembly in terms of further information.

MR SPEAKER: Mr Smyth, a supplementary?

MR SMYTH: Yes, thank you, Mr Speaker. Minister for Health, will you also look at whether or not you can provide a copy of the draft report to the Assembly?

MS GALLAGHER: I presumed that was part of Mr Seselja's question, but, yes, I will have a look at that.

Mr Stanhope: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Canberra Hospital—surgery cancellation

Hospitals—ambulance bypasses

MS GALLAGHER: (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (4:08): I just have a couple of matters from question time last week, in relation to whether any elective surgery cancellations had occurred in relation to any surgery because of the activity levels at the hospital. In July 2010, I understand there were two postponements, but they were due to non-availability of an intensive care bed, not just a general hospital bed. It was the lack of availability of an intensive care bed for their operation—so there were two instances of that.

In relation to Mr Smyth's question on bypass, from May to July 2010, there has been bypass for 0.8 per cent of the time. It has occurred 19 times for a total of 34 hours.
