Superclinics

(Question No. 370)


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

Of the $280.2 million allocated to the 2007-08 GP Super Clinics Program, what amount was spent in (a) 2007-08, (b) 2008-09, (c) 2009-10, (d) 2010-11, and what sum is in the forward estimates.


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

The $280.2 million allocated over 5 years to the 2007-08 GP Super Clinics Program included:

$184.3 million for the GP Super Clinics Program (including $2.6 program support costs);

$36.8 million for Pharmaceutical Benefits flow on costs;

$50.0 million for Medicare Benefits flow on costs; and

$9.2 million for Veterans' Entitlements flow on costs.

Medicare Benefits, Pharmaceutical Benefits and Veterans' Entitlements are demand driven programs funded under Special Appropriations Acts. As such, actual costs incurred are not able to be separately identified against estimated flow on measures.

(a—d)

Of the $184.3 million Administered funding allocated to the GP Super Clinics Program, as at 30 June 2011, actual expenditure was:
