Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 5 Hansard (7 May) . .
ACT Health is currently progressing work on master plans for both Calvary and Canberra Hospitals. Whilst it is intended to table overarching details of these master plans when finalised, the tabling of detailed plans may not be appropriate in view of security implications.
Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Wednesday, 25 March 2015): There is currently one palliative care nurse practitioner providing some services to patients in private aged care facilities. An evaluation of this initially Commonwealth funded position is currently underway.
Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Doszpot on Wednesday, 25 March 2015): No advice has been given to private aged care providers regarding future provision of ACT Health funded palliative care services.
Given the Commonwealth's responsibility for both aged care and primary health care, this is a matter which will also require the engagement of the Commonwealth.
Mr Corbell (in reply to a question by Mr Wall on Thursday, 26 March 2015): The representative of the small number of specialists who are taking protected industrial action formally notified ACT Health on 24 March 2015 of their intention to commence that action on 30 March 2015. ACT Health advised me of this on 25 March 2015.
