Paper and statement by minister

MR WOOD (Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, and Minister for Arts and Heritage): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Annual Report 2003-2004 Volume 1-ACT Health-Erratum-Achievements and Financial Statements.

I ask for leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MR WOOD: ACT Health has identified several errors areas in the 2002-03 annual report. In relation to nursing services, under "Key Achievements"on page 51, paragraph 2, ACT Health has advised that there were in fact only three successful ACT nurse practitioner models trialled, not four as stated, as the military setting model was not completed.

The annual report provides information on consultancy and contractor services on pages 156 to 167. ACT Health has advised that on pages 162 and 163 under "Contractors and Consultants Report"the dates are shown in US format style.

Under "Community Health", on page 167, line 6, the entry for Morgan Disney and Associates should be deleted as this entry is a duplicate of line 2. These inaccuracies were caused by a print format error that occurred off site.

The annual report also provides financial documentation relating to capital works management on pages 168 to 170. ACT Health has advised that an error in the summation formula for the first totals has occurred and this also affects the second line of totals. A revised table is attached.

The chair of the Standing Committee on Health was advised of the errors and provided with the erratum in print prior to the hearing of the committee on 6 November.

ACT Health has identified a further error in the 2002-03 annual report and the following corrections to the ACT Health annual report, volume 1, "Achievements and Financial Statements"should be noted. TCH provided comparative rates for patient satisfaction survey results for 2001-02, 2002-03, and these figures were published on page 25. There has been a typographical error in the data provided where the day surgery figures were transposed with the emergency department figures. The figures should read as the erratum indicates.
