Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 2 Hansard (18 February) . .

Institute of Sport provide year round swimming and both have 50 metre pools. Big Splash also has a 50 metre pool and is open from October - March. King Swim provides year round swimming, but is primarily a learn-to-swim facility. With four pools already in the region, each no further than 12 kilometres from the proposed new development area, the Framework shows the region is well catered for in comparison to other districts with the existing facilities having capacity to cater for any increased demand from the community.

In the circumstances, the ACT Government has no current plans to provide a public pool in the West Belconnen area.

Nevertheless, and with the development of West Belconnen still very much in its early stages, it is yet to be seen whether a commercial provider may see an opportunity to provide another aquatic facility in the region in the future. Noting the previous private aquatic facility located at Kippax closed and there are already four aquatic facilities located in Belconnen, a commercial decision would be guided by the market's assessment of how viable another facility would be.

Health—mobile intensive treatment team (Question No 603)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 19 November 2015:

How many FTE, PTE and head count of staff are at each pay grade within the Mobile Intensive Treatment Team in the categories of (a) mental health nurse, (b) RN's, (c) enrolled nurse, (d) administrative staff, (e) nurse in charge, (f) staff doctor, (g) doctor, (h) psychiatrist, (i) social worker and (j) any other staff within the Mobile Intensive Treatment Team.

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

The data in the table below is extracted from the ACT Health Workforce Profile for the pay period ending 17 June 2015, the last pay period of 2014-15.

The headcount (HC) and full time equivalent (FTE) data is grouped by staff group, classification and employment category for each pay grade.

There is no classification of "mental health nurse"; the nursing classifications are either Registered Nurses or Enrolled Nurses.

The Mobile Intensive Treatment Team does not have staff that meet (f) staff doctor, (g) doctor, (h) psychiatrist, or (i) social worker categories.
