4. ACT Health is a large and complex organisation. The scale and scope of the department’s service delivery reform program has expanded substantially over the years. As explained below in the answer to question 5, the ACT Health Communications Branch is responsible for creating and sharing a large amount of information to explain to the public, clinical areas and stakeholders changes to service delivery, reform programs, infrastructure and service expansion, developing and managing public health campaigns, as well as respond to a wide range of media enquiries. On this basis, the Communications Branch is appropriately structured considering the functions being undertaken and the size of the organisation.

5. Over the past 12 months, ACT Health’s Communication Branch has written or is implementing in excess of 30 communication strategies/communication action plans, for example, University of Canberra Hospital Communication and Engagement Strategy, Meningococcal ACWY Vaccine Communication Strategy, Ways to Wellbeing Communication Action Plan and the ACT Health Digital Communications Plan.

Each of these communication strategies/communication action plans involve a range of communication including:

Social Media products;





Direct mail;

Print product (brochures, posters etc); and

Media (media releases, media alerts).

In the last year ACT Health’s graphic design team was involved in designing 226 pieces of collateral.

6. A constant stream of communication collateral is produced and distributed throughout the year. The timing is dictated by new programs or facilities coming online, ministerial announcements, or major health awareness days such as Donate Life Week. More information can be found on the ACT Health Website -

7. The reach and frequency of this collateral varies depending on the communication objectives and the size of the target audience/s identified in the relevant communication strategy/action plan.
