Transforming Health: Central Adelaide Local Health Network - Proposal to Utilise Dedicated Space for Clinical Trials for The New Royal Adelaide Hospital

27 June 2017

Following discussions with Clinical Trials staff where is was considered appropriate to identify a dedicated clinical trials space rather than incorporate clinical trial participants into ad hoc outpatient space. The PSA has now been advised of a proposal to utilise a dedicated space in the new RAH for Clinical Trials. The presentation is available (here).

The current proposal is to convert the staff dining room space on level three behind the food court precinct of the new RAH dedicated Clinical Trials space, allowing close proximity to the Outpatients space.

The PSA has been advised that across the new RAH, Staff Activity Hubs are located in the blue space for staff use only. There is one hub per floor (nine in total). Activity Hubs include general kitchen facilities, tea/coffee, microwave, fridges and a dishwasher. They also include informal meeting and eating spaces as well as soft seating such as lounges. In addition sky gardens and other green spaces across the facility are also accessible to staff.

PSA members who have any comments or concerns about this proposed change to the new RAH can contact PSA Transforming Health Officer here.
