Any public or health hospital concerned that considers that the funds received do not adequately reflect the costs it would incur to implement the “new” results of the company agreement may submit its case to the Ministry for verification. (As a first step, public hospitals and health services should make their own calculations based on the calculations described in the example above.) The ministry will verify these local calculations upon request. The seventeen hospitals and public health services concerned (“Public Mental Health Services”) mentioned in the EA for Mental Health 2016 have been required, since their commissioning, to provide the salaries and services it describes. Under the Departmental Funding Model (DFM), the indexation of 2.5% pa for wage movements is considered to be provided for prices and should be deducted from the costs of an EBA before providing further supplements. The assumed indexation of the DFM shall be calculated on the relevant salary basis at the time of the expiry of the previous EBA and then applied annually to the compound interest basis. The ministry only offers indexation of state funding. Public hospitals and health services should set aside funds from these other sources to support the costs of company agreements. For the current round of business negotiations, the ministry referred more directly to the profile of the staff of each public hospital or health service concerned in its budget modelling than in previous cycles, where budget modelling focused more on “whole sectoral profiles”. This will eliminate some of the heaviest “swings and roundabouts” that may have emerged in the context of the previous approach. The parties to the agreement have committed to implementing changes in the way the Victorian government works and provides services by agreeing on the principles of “labour mobility”.
The principles recognise that the services required by the Community of a modern public service are not static; They change all the time. Bendigo Health has several positions in both clinical and non-clinical professions, please visit our career page for details. www.bendigohealth.org.au/careers/ public hospitals and health services are reminded that the ministry does not finance 100% of its activities. Hospitals and health services typically have other sources of revenue, including Commonwealth funding and grants (e.g. B financing of care for the elderly), income from private practices and income from activities.
