Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 04 Hansard (Thursday, 12 April 2018) . . Page.. 1471 ..

A centre-based, sub-acute, 24 hour step up/down supported accommodation and outreach program for young people, 18–25 year old, (six beds) including; a minimum of 1,856 supported accommodation days per annum; and a minimum of 150 transitional support hours per annum to young people exiting the accommodation.

An outreach based, adult, sub-acute 12 hours daily, seven days/week intensive outreach support service which targets forensic consumers; in particular those exiting Alexander Maconochie Centre (ten places at any one time). This program includes; 365 available support days annually and support for an average of 90 days per consumer.

(2) ACT Health is a member institute of the MRCF. ACT- based early stage research (including university research) is reviewed by the MRCF for potential commercialisation. The fund is used to support viable research through the commercialisation pipeline and fosters best practice in the commercialisation of medical innovations.

Wellways is funded via a Service Funding Agreement (SFA) with ACT Health. The SFA is for the period 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2019.

(3) ACT Health contributes $75,000 per annum to the MCRF with five years of payments remaining.

Wellways is paid in quarterly instalments. The next payment under the SFA of $816,145 (GST Inclusive) is due on 12 April 2018. Total funding for the final year of the contract, 2018-19 (not including indexation) is $3,264,583 (GST Inclusive).

(4) In regards to the MRCF, an annual report is provided on performance and outcomes. To date, there has been a number of initiatives considered by both the Australian National University (ANU) and the University of Canberra. As an example, the most recent review is of a new cancer drug with the ANU that if it passes the commercialisation assessment would see a phase 1 cancer trial run at Canberra Hospital.

The expected outcome of the Wellways agreement is that consumers will have improved mental health outcomes and opportunities to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence to manage future crises, through increased awareness of, and capacity to access, ongoing education, community resources and support networks.
