Canberra Hospital—bullying

Ms Berry (in reply to a question by Mrs Kikkert and a supplementary question by Mr Milligan on Thursday, 15 December 2016):

(1) In 2015-16 ACT Health received bullying and harassment complaints from 37 ACT Health staff, of which only three proceeded to formal investigation. Due to the small number of complaints received, we are unable to provide a further breakdown by Divisions, due to the privacy of staff.

(2) The staff survey does not confirm this.

(3) No, I will not release any Workplace Culture Survey results. The results of the workplace survey have been used for internal planning purposes. That has been the consistent approach the Government has adopted in relation to this survey, and it is important that the privacy of staff completing the survey is protected.
