Questions without notice

Canberra Hospital—medical wards

MR HANSON: My question is to the Minister for Health. Minister, an external review was recently conducted into practices and procedures in the medical wards at the Canberra Hospital by an external consultant, I believe a Dr Brown, but not Peggy Brown; that is my understanding. Are you aware of this review? What organisation conducted the review and what are the findings?

MS GALLAGHER: No, I do not recall being aware of that review at all. I will have to check my records but it does not set off anything in my head. There are a lot of reviews done across Health. I can certainly find out and come back to the Assembly.

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Hanson, a supplementary question.

MR HANSON: Minister, when you come back with that information, could you come back with an explanation as to the reason for conducting the review.

MS GALLAGHER: Yes, I am very happy to do that.

MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Smyth, a supplementary question.

MR SMYTH: Minister, you might also have to take this on notice as you are unaware of the review. What actions will now be taken as a consequence of the review?

MS GALLAGHER: It sounds like you might have the review; do you? Suspicions are being raised.

Mr Smyth interjecting—

MS GALLAGHER: I am not aware of it—unless it is known by another name. I just put that caveat on it. I will come back to the Assembly with further information.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Again, Chief Minister, you might have to take it on notice but was the review prompted by a number of unexplained deaths in these wards?
