With an election looming Katy Gallagher has decided it’s time to put the gripes of the past behind us (and more importantly her).
She’s looking to the future at the hospital with the help of a big swag of commonwealth loot.
The release makes for hard reading, but here’s what I think the highlights are:
- A new Community Health Centre at Gungahlin ($18m),
- A 16-bed ICU/CCU/HDU facility at Calvary Hospital, a new neurosurgery suite (($5.5m),
- A mental health precinct ($37.6m),
- $6.6 million to assist with the costs of constructing two operating theatres at TCH and one at Calvary Public Hospital which will enable the ACT to provide more elective surgery procedures.
Anything new and important that I’ve missed?
