Consultation

Launceston General Hospital

The consultation process has included the formation of various project teams. The project team includes individual project managers and officers, representation from the design consultant (Architects in Association) and medical, nursing and administrative users as well as representatives from building and engineering and stakeholders from other clinical areas are invited on an ad hoc basis to inform the design process. Depending on timeframes and critical issues, meetings may be held on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis and are systematically recorded and reported back to the Project Control Group.

The following diagram illustrates the Project Control Group and the governance structure with reporting relationships.

The Project Control Group meets on a regular basis to enable the project to evolve in line with the project timelines, the aim being to enable an adequate consultation phase while still allowing sufficient periods for documentation and procurement of the project.

The overall project management structure for the capital works projects will include the Project Sponsor and if necessary a Project Control Group (PCG) and Project/User Teams. The DEM, AMU & Levels 4 & 5 along with the LICC will have Project Control Groups established, while the smaller or single focused projects such as the car park and ward upgrades will not require a formal PCG but will be progressed under a project management framework including reporting to the Northern Area Health Service Executive through the Project Sponsor.

Consultation with Onsite Stakeholders

In addition to representation via the Project Control Group and Project Teams, a service review workshop for the DEM was undertaken late 2008 where the schematic design was presented to DEM stakeholders and representatives from the LGH Consumer Reference Group. This workshop discussed the model of care and patient flow in relationship to the new design.

Preliminary plans have been displayed onsite and further briefing sessions with staff have been held.
