(3) If the total number of beds in the ACT Health public bed stock on 30 March 2015 as given in (1) above is not 1068 as predicted in the December 2014 Quarterly report, what is the difference and how many are acute, sub-acute and non-acute beds.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The ACT Health public bed stock at the end of March 2015 is 1068.

(2) ACT Health does not report bed split by care type definitions, rather we report bed numbers by their status, whether they are considered to be an overnight or same day bed. (a) 766 of the 1068 beds are on the Canberra Hospital campus and 648 of these are considered overnight beds. Only overnight beds are factored into ACT Health's bed occupancy calculations. (b) 302 of the 1068 beds are located on the Calvary Health Care campus and 253 of these are considered overnight beds. (c) There are an additional 20 public beds located at the Queen Elizabeth II Family Care Centre (QEII). However, whilst these beds are publicly funded, they are not reported in ACT Health's public bed stock figure of 1068, nor are they considered in ACT Health's bed occupancy calculations.

(3) The ACT Health public bed stock at the end of March 2015 is 1068 as predicted in the December 2014 Quarterly report.
