Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2004 Week 10 Hansard (24 August) . . Page.. 4044..

MR CORBELL (continuing):

Firstly, a probative review conducted by Acumen Alliance, ACT Health's internal auditors.

This is the paper I have tabled today.

Secondly, a workplace environment review will examine management and staff behaviour in the workplace as well as key human resource policies in the alcohol and drug program.

This review has commenced and is being conducted by Ms Catherine McPherson, former Senior Assistant Ombudsman.

Thirdly, the clinical governance review will examine the appropriateness of clinical services and clinical policies within the alcohol and drug program.

The review team for this review is currently being recruited but will be composed of experts in drug and alcohol services and clinical governance. The review is expected to commence in the coming weeks and be completed in early 2005.

The probity review conducted by Acumen Alliance was completed on 9 August 2004. The review has made several findings, which are listed by reference to the review objective, the conclusion of the Acumen Alliance report and the subsequent ACT Health management response. These are the documents that I have tabled for the information of members.

This report is an important first step and a comprehensive response aimed at verifying the truth made in the allegations raised by Ms Tucker and moving the alcohol and drug program onto a more sound footing so that they can keep providing their most valuable services to the ACT community.

I move:

That the Assembly takes note of the paper.

Debate (on motion by Mr Smyth ) adjourned to the next sitting.


Mr Wood presented the following paper:

Subordinate legislation (including explanatory statement unless otherwise stated)

Legislation Act, pursuant to section 6-

Magistrates Court Act-Magistrates Court (Occupational Health and Safety Infringement Notices) Regulations 2004-Subordinate Law SL2004-32 (LR, 4 August 2004).
