Output Group/Output 2010-11 Budget 2010-11 Estimate 2011-12 Budget $000 $000 $000 Acute Services 647 342 688 442 720 672 Admitted Patient Services 517 546 546 410 570 859 Non-Admitted Patient Services 129 796 142 032 149 813 Key Variations The Acute Services output group increased in 2010-11 mainly due to an increase of $23.8 million for services provided on a fee-for-service basis, including cross border patient services and additional hospital fees and charges, an additional $8.4 million in Commonwealth funding, and $3 million for contracted Emergency Road Ambulance and Medical Transportation Services. The output group increases in 2011-12 are mainly due to the Northern Territory Public Sector Medical Officers Enterprise Agreement 2011-2013, $9.6 million for the Commonwealth-funded Improving Hospital Services program, $2.5 million for programs that deal with chronic disease and $1.6 million for the new Northern Territory medical school. These variations are in addition to annual indexation arrangements.
