Save RNSH Again! started this petition to NSW Government

The NSW Government is proposing to redevelop 2.27 hectares of land within the grounds of the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) for purposes other than patient-related health care. This land should be preserved for future growth of the hospital.

The Save RNSH Again! campaign group has created an ePetition in the NSW Parliament for you to sign:

We respectfully ask the NSW Legislative Assembly to:

  1. Cease the proposed Herbert Street Precinct development.
  2. Preserve the RNSH land for future hospital growth.
  3. Ensure any future development of RNSH land is used for patient-related health care by the hospital.
  4. Expand the RNSH campus to meet the health care needs of future generations.

The site of this proposed development is the most accessible land on the RNSH campus, being close to St Leonards trains and buses. This land should be reserved for the provision of adequate and easily accessible medical services, not leased out long-term to developers for commercial activities.

RNSH is a principal tertiary referral hospital for Northern Sydney Local Health District. It also provides a comprehensive range of complex specialty services to patients from all across NSW, including major trauma, severe burns, and spinal cord injuries.

But the RNSH campus is one of the smallest Teaching Hospital campuses in NSW and has only a small amount of land still available to expand the hospital as the population increases. 

This is not the first time the community has fought to save RNSH land. The Clinical Services Building was built on land saved from a previous government attempt to sell hospital land 10 years ago.

It is important to the entire NSW community that the remaining hospital land be reserved for clinical uses, both now and for future generations.
