Chief Minister Gallagher has a nod to modernity in the form of Chargebars going in across Canberra Hospital thanks to Dry July:
Chief Minister and Minister for Health, Katy Gallagher, today welcomed the addition of mobile phone Chargebars across several areas of Canberra Hospital.
The mobile phone Chargebars were installed as a result of donations from Dry July to the Canberra Hospital Foundation.
“This is another fantastic addition to the hospital that will make what is often an emotional time for patients and their family just a little bit easier,” the Chief Minister said.
“Something as simple as keeping a mobile phone charged so that patients or their loved ones can remain connected and use their phones as entertainment can make a big difference during their stay in hospital.”
All units are available for use by patients, families and staff and are located in areas that ensure they are easily accessible.
“The Canberra Hospital Foundation initially installed one unit in the Cafe on a trial basis and this trial was so successful the decision was taken to install additional units in other locations around the hospital.”
