Superclinics

(Question No. 599)


Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Health and Ageing, in writing, on 14 September 2011:

In respect of the GP Super Clinics Program, how many (a) GP presentations were made at the operational clinics in June and July 2011, and (b) nursing and allied health presentations were made at the operational clinics.


Ms Roxon: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The current presentation data collection framework was implemented from 1 February 2011. The framework provides for the identification of GP, nursing and allied health presentations and the collection of data every two months by my Department from operational GP Super Clinic sites and those delivering early services.

(a) From 1 June 2011 to 31 July 2011 there were approximately 65,000 presentations to GPs at the 14 GP Super Clinics that were already operational or commenced operations during this period.

(b) From 1 June 2011 to 31 July 2011 there were approximately 20,000 presentations to nurses and allied health professionals at the 14 GP Super Clinics that were already operational or commenced operations during this period.
