Katy Gallagher has promised a racy number of new hospital beds if she’s re-elected.
If re-elected, ACT Labor will invest in 69 more beds, more than 100 doctors and nurses and new services at Calvary Public Hospital.
Our commitment will help meet the demand for public hospital services in the rapidly growing suburbs in our cities north.
It means we will deliver new types of health care never before offered in the north, and extend existing services.
UPDATE 11/09/12 10:45: There’s also the promise of a birth centre:
That’s why, if re-elected, ACT Labor will provide $850,000 for a Birth Centre at Calvary Public Hospital for women living in Canberra’s north.
It will mean for the first time, women on the north side can access midwifery led care in state-of-the-art birthing facilities closer to home.
We will also review birth projections, particularly for Canberra’s northern suburbs to inform future expansions to maternity services.
