Hospitals—peer group listing (Question No 551)

Mr Hanson asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 19 November 2015:

(1) On 16 November 2015 did the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare produce a new listing for peer group hospitals in Australia showing The Canberra Hospital remains in the highest peer group in Australia while Calvary is now in the second tier.

(2) What are the impacts on Commonwealth funding to the ACT that will flow from the fact that the ACT will only have one Tier 1 hospital

(3) What are the impacts on Commonwealth funding to the ACT that will flow from the fact that in the ACT Calvary has shifted to a Tier 2 hospital

(4) What are the impacts on Commonwealth funding to the ACT that will flow from the fact that several NSW hospitals in our region have been downgraded from Tier 1 to Tier 2 hospitals

(5) What are the funding impacts for the ACT on the cross funding agreements between NSW and ACT.

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

(1) Yes.

(2) The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IPHA) does not use peer grouping to determine funding. A change in peer grouping will not change the type or quantum of activity generated in ACT public hospitals.
