us to make sure the framework has patients at the centre of its thinking rather than seeing patients as a particular illness, disease or injury; that they guide the framework so that all the subsequent service planning can be focused on patients and their families trusting and understanding the health system they are in; and that, no matter at which point in time a patient enters the health system, they have services made available to them that are easy to understand and easy to navigate and, most importantly, focus on keeping Canberrans healthy and well.

Tuggeranong—CIT car park lighting

MS LAWDER: My question is to the Minister for Transport and City Services. Minister, I am aware that recently the Tuggeranong Community Council wrote to you requesting that lighting be installed in the car park behind Tuggeranong CIT. The Australian Human Rights Commission’s report into sexual harassment at higher education campuses outlined the high rate of sexual harassment on or near campuses.

MS FITZHARRIS: Again I refer to my previous answers. I will get an update. I will take the question on notice and provide a response to the Assembly.

The annual report includes the information that you could expect to find in the quarterly reports. As I also indicated in my statement earlier today, I will continue to provide updates to the Assembly through the quarterly reporting process, as well as taking advice from the review panel on the information
