Drugs—corrections facility based urine test (Question No 1829)

Mr Hanson asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 21 September 2011:

What is the total cost per administration for a corrections facility based urine test for illegal or prohibited substances.

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

On some occasions Forensic Mental Health Services may conduct urine drug screens as part of a comprehensive and ongoing assessment or as part of a treatment plan. The cost varies depending on public or private Pathology services, but the service by the AMC quotes the cost at $41.80 plus GST.

Corrections facility based urine tests for illegal or prohibited substances would rest with the ACT Correction Services and is not a Health matter.
