Mr Pettersson asked the Minister for Justice Health, upon notice, on 25 March 2022:
(1) When did work on the Justice Health Strategy commence.
(2) Why is the strategy needed and what issues is it seeking to address.
(3) Why have the issues, referred to in part (2), emerged and what steps will the Minister take through the strategy to ensure these are not repeated.
(4) What consultations have occurred and if no consultations have occurred, why not.
(5) What metrics will be used to determine success or failure of the strategy and will these be incorporated into the accountability indicators associated with Output 1.2.
(6) Why are there currently no specific indicators for the health and wellbeing of detainees at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).
(7) When will the strategy be launched and when will it commence.
(8) How will health outcomes for detainees be improved prior to the commencement of the strategy.
(9) How will this strategy address current shortages in psychiatrists and psychologists working in justice health at the AMC.
Ms Davidson: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) While reviewing service delivery and implementing plans to improve the quality and safety of health care to detainees are core business as usual practices, a specific Justice Health Strategy is being developed in response to the Auditor-General’s audit into the management of detainee mental health services at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC). Therefore, this work has two phases - review of the recommendations which commenced in December 2021, and development of the Justice Health Strategy which will commence following the Government response to the above-mentioned audit.
