Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 11 Hansard (20 October) . . Page.. 4806..


Health—inpatient services (Question No 1780)

Mr Hanson asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 20 September 2011:

In relation to the 2011-12 Budget, Health Directorate Output Class 1.1, what is the (a) total amount budgeted for inpatient services, (b) forecasted growth in patient demand for inpatient services, (c) total amount budgeted for outpatient services, (d) forecasted growth in patient demand for outpatient services, (e) total amount budgeted for emergency department services and (f) forecasted growth in patient demand for emergency department services, for the financial years (i) 2011-12, (ii) 2012-13, (iii) 2013-14 and (iv) 2014-15.

Ms Gallagher: I am advised that the answer to the member's question is as follows:

(a, c & e) The Health Directorate budgets by function rather than for services in the way listed in questions (a), (c) and (e) and I am therefore unable to advise the 2011-12 through to 2014 15 Budgets for these items. The Health Directorate does retrospectively report National Health Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) information in this format. The last NHCDC return was for 2008-09 when it was reported for ACT Public Hospital that 62% of expenditure was for admitted services, 13% for outpatient services and 11% for emergency department. The other 14% relates to teaching, research and other services.

(b, d & f) The forecasted growth for 2011-12 to 2014-15 in inpatient, outpatient and emergency services is 3 per cent per annum.
