Chief Minister Gallagher and the University of Canberra have announced a deed signing today:

Chief Minister and Minister for Health, Katy Gallagher, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Canberra, Professor Stephen Parker have today signed a deed to allow for work on the University of Canberra Public Hospital (UCPH) to move into the design phase.

“Our signing of these two deeds means we can progress design work on the new University of Canberra Public Hospital and continue on the project to deliver a state-of-the-art sub-acute hospital for Canberra’s north side,” the Chief Minister said.

“In the most recent ACT Budget the ACT Government allocated $8.2 million dollars for the planning and forward design work on the UCPH and I am pleased to be able to sign this deed of agreement with Vice-Chancellor, Stephen Parker, today to mark the transition into the design phase of the project.”

“In the coming months, we will release the draft Service Delivery Plan for public consultation and engage a Principal Consultant to develop preliminary sketch plans for the new facility.
