Northern Beaches Health Service Redevelopment
Delivering world-class health care to the Northern Beaches

The Northern Beaches Health Service Redevelopment team is pleased to make publicly available the Request for Proposal Executive Summary for the Northern Beaches Hospital Project.

This document describes all aspects of the project, including requirements for the services to be provided at the new hospital, its design, construction, commissioning, workforce migration, and the acute patient transfer from Manly and Mona Vale Hospitals to the new Northern Beaches Hospital.

We ask for your assistance in distributing the document to ensure the community are aware of the major investment to improve access to health services on the Northern Beaches.

As residents, patients and health consumers become more interested in this project, it is important your community or group is informed about how and why we are redesigning health service delivery on the Northern Beaches. As such, the team would appreciate the opportunity to attend your community or association meetings to provide a presentation about the project.

In the meantime, please visit our project website at www.nbhsredev.health.nsw.gov.au. You can also email us at northernbeaches.enquiries@hinfra.health.nsw.gov.au or call 9978 5410 for more information. We can also put you on our distribution list so you can receive email updates about the project, request additional copies of the document or book a time for us to come and talk to you and your organisation.

Thank you for your assistance in sharing this information.

Yours sincerely

Michael Player
Communications Lead
Northern Beaches Health Service Redevelopment Project
