I sought advice from ACT Health in order to respond to the Member's question and a response has been provided to questions 3, 4 and 5.

It was considered that providing a response to questions 1, 2 and 6 would require an unreasonable diversion of mental health staff resources. Responding to the questions would require a manual break down and analysis of hundreds of pages of raw data.

(1) ACT Health is unable to provide a response to this question due to the high resource implications to analyse raw data.

(2) ACT Health is unable to provide a response to this question due to the high resource implications to analyse raw data.

Financial Year All Staff Nursing Staff April 2012 - June 2012 $ 100,933 $ 99,381 July 2012- June 2013 $ 473,000 $ 446,000 July 2013 - June 2014 $ 486,920 $ 459,380
