Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 4 June 2015) . . Page.. 2096 ..
A communication and stakeholder engagement plan has been developed for the UCPH project and outlines the objectives, including but not limited to informing stakeholders about the objectives and progress of the project; and informing and engaging stakeholders in the planning, design and development process, to assist with a seamless transition to a new facility and new model of service; providing a mechanism to address concerns of stakeholders, for issues to be heard and their input to be potentially integrated into the project, lay the foundations for ongoing communication with consumers and their carers who will potentially be affected by the development; and seek input from the community on how the facility could be further improved through public consultation.
Stakeholders, including the ANMF, are advised of key engagement points during the stages of health infrastructure program projects, including when the models of care, services plans and preliminary designs are released.
Consultation processes for the HIP, including the release of the service delivery plan for the UCPH, are also communicated through methods such as the ACT Health website, on the HIP page; the ACT government Time to Talk consultation website; media coverage; project newsletters; letters to specific external stakeholders; the government community noticeboard in the Canberra Times; social media; and various internal communication methods, including the director-general’s news bulletin, and whole-of-government messaging.
All health infrastructure program projects have a governance process that includes a project control group, informed by user groups, which consist of internal and external stakeholders, including consumers and clinical staff, who include members of the ANMF, and non-clinical support staff.
Project outcomes are reviewed and endorsed through the Canberra Hospital and health services and the Calvary hospital executive steering committees, and ultimately the health infrastructure program strategic committee. These committees include ACT Health and consumer representation.
