(8) ACT Health is committed to the delivery of person-centred safe, effective quality care maintaining a cycle of continuous improvement in the delivery of health care. ACT Health has a strong culture of quality improvement evidenced by the soon to be launched Quality Strategy and annual ACT Health Quality Awards. A number of service improvements are occurring to further improve the safety and quality of care.

The process includes daily review of medication fridge temperature range and compliance reporting. Recognising the importance of continued quality improvement, ACT Health is implementing a range of work which will further improve compliance with the National Safety and Quality Standards through implementation of an organisation wide automated fridge temperature monitoring system.

(Question No 1015)

Mr Coe asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 23 February 2018:

(1) Can the Treasurer provide, for each financial year since 2012-2012 and for each year of the forward estimates, the (a) number of dwellings that paid the fixed charge of the ratings system and (b) total amount of revenue generated through the fixed charge, broken down by (i) houses, (ii) rural properties, (iii) units and (iv) commercial properties.

(2) What are the residential conveyance duty rates for each year since 2011-12 and across each of the forward estimates, broken down by each threshold in Table 6.2.6 in 2017-18 Budget Paper 3.

(3) How many transactions are expected to occur for each year of the budget estimates and how many took place each financial year since 2011-12 to date

(4) Can the Treasurer provide the population of Canberra for each year since 2001 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) (a) The number of private residential properties that paid the fixed charge between 2011-12 and 2017-18 is shown in Table 1 below. It does not include forward estimates as the Government does not forecast growth in rateable dwellings. General rates revenue is set in aggregate which takes into account the expected growth in overall population.
