Health—cancer screening (Question No 1783)

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

In relation to the 2011-12 Budget, Health Directorate Output Class 1.4, what is the (a) total amount budgeted for cancer screening, assessment and diagnosis, (b) forecasted growth in patient demand for cancer screening, assessment and diagnosis, (c) total amount budgeted for palliative care services and (d) forecasted growth in patient demand for palliative care 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) $3.813m.

(b) I am advised that there is no data currently available that is able to forecast the growth in patient demand for cancer screening, assessment and diagnosis. To extrapolate this information would be too resource intensive to undertake in order to answer the Members question.

(c) The Health Directorate does not budget to this level, therefore this information would be too resource intensive to undertake in order to answer the Members question.

(d) I am advised that there is no data currently available that is able to forecast the growth in patient demand for palliative care services. To extrapolate this information would be too resource intensive to undertake in order to answer the Members question.
