Superclinics

(Question No. 369)


Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Health and Ageing, in writing, on 23 May 2011:

In respect of the GP Super Clinics Program, how many presentations were made in (a) October, November and December 2010; and (b) January, February, March and April 2011.


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

(a-b)

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 the Department from operational GP Super Clinic sites and those delivering early services.

Prior to 31 January 2011, there were approximately 289,000 presentations at the (then) eight operational GP Super Clinic sites. This figure includes early services that had been delivered, at some of these sites. In addition, there were approximately 273,000 presentations at those sites delivering early services but not yet fully operational.

From 1 February 2011 to 31 March 2011, there were approximately 66,000 presentations at the operational GP Super Clinic sites. In addition, there were approximately 35,000 presentations at those sites delivering early services.

From 1 April 2011 to 31 May 2011, there were approximately 73,000 presentations at the operational GP Super Clinic sites. In addition, there were approximately 52,000 presentations at those sites delivering early services.
