Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 3 Hansard (9 April) . . Page.. 837..

MR CORBELL: Without being aware of the specific Assembly committee evidence Mr Coe appears to be referring to, I will check the record and provide further advice to the member.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, what is the operational cost that was incorporated in the economic modelling?

MR CORBELL: As Mr Smyth would be aware, there has been a series of economic assessments undertaken in relation to this project. Without knowing specifically which one Mr Smyth is referring to, I am not able to answer that question.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: In reference to the economic modelling the minister just referred to in his previous answer, would he give us the operational cost that was incorporated in each of those economic models?

MR CORBELL: That matter is currently subject to cabinet consideration and I am not at liberty to disclose it.

Health—Tuggeranong Community Health Centre

MR GENTLEMAN: My question is to the acting Minister for Health. Could the minister update the Assembly on progress with the Tuggeranong Community Health Centre refurbishment/

MR BARR: I thank Mr Gentleman for the question. I am very pleased to be able to advise the Assembly of the government's ongoing commitment to continued investment in quality health care for Canberrans. On 22 March I along with my cabinet colleagues and Mr Gentleman were pleased to be there for the official opening of the Tuggeranong Community Health Centre. The Tuggeranong Community Health Centre is the third community health centre to be delivered as part of the ACT government's 10-year program of investment in improving health infrastructure across the territory. It is known as the health infrastructure program—an imaginative title.

The overall aim of the health infrastructure program is that it improves the quality of care that is provided for people accessing healthcare services. It is also about ensuring the efficient and effective delivery of services in the territory. The new Tuggeranong centre not only enhances the services offered there but also gives the people of Tuggeranong access to services in a community-based setting that they have previously only been able to access at the hospital.

The new clinical facilities are state of the art with modern equipment and open planning that allows for great collaboration between service providers. The centre has been custom designed in consultation with staff and healthcare consumers.
