ANU Clinical Training Facility
The Australian National University (ANU) Rural Clinical School has successfully secured a Commonwealth grant and in partnership with the Southern NSW Local Health District will deliver a new Clinical Training Facility (CTF) at Goulburn Base Hospital with both organisations committing to a Memorandum of Understanding to operate the new facility.
The Goulburn Base Hospital CTF is the largest, by student numbers, of the six ANU CTF’s operating in south-eastern Australia. The current service is operating from a small demountable building which is no longer fit for purpose. The new facility seeks to enable a contemporary, integrated and future-focused teaching and learning environment including simulation suites, clinical specialist consultation rooms, auditorium facilities suitable for public education and clinical training, as well as administration offices and support spaces. In addition, there will be a program of medical student placements, including collaborative teaching with hospital junior medical staff and nursing and allied health student placements, building on existing clinical involvement in the hospital and community.
RP Infrastructure (RPI) is commissioned to provide comprehensive project management and facility planning services. This includes the management of all stages of the works including collaboration agreements to finalise leases and licenses, design, authority approvals, design finalisation, contractor award and commissioning activities in partnership with our client Health Infrastructure NSW.
Multiple stakeholders have been involved with the ANU CTF project, each with their own diverse and unique needs. In addressing this challenge, RPI continues to provide a consistent line of communication and collaboration between all stakeholders, and we have been facilitating negotiation and agreement to address concerns raised to achieve an agreed outcome for all parties.
