In case ACT Labor is re-elected, as per a recent report, $74 million would be required to be paid to the Canberra Hospital for appointment of new doctors and nurses as well as for beds.
The demand has been put forth by the labor itself. As per the report, the pledge made yesterday is an addition to the announcement made last month. It was declared that Calvary Hospital needs 70 new beds and the recent declaration seems a part of a bigger plan as it asks for 170 new beds with 500 new doctors and nurses for the hospital.
Katy Gallagher, Chief Minister, had called up the Canberra Liberals so that they may disclose their plans for the number of beds at the Canberra Hospital. Since, as per her, the ''five-year plan'' by opposition for health spending did not include the matter.
It was affirmed by her that Yamba Drive crossing of the hospital was reviewed, but the same only asked for minor enhancements. Only small reforms could ensure the crossing's safety. She has told that 72 new beds would be opened by a Labor government over four years.
Unallocated funds would fund the bed numbers. "It's like a savings account where we've deposited money, it hasn't yet been allocated", said she.
