ACT Budget to Boost Canberra’s Health and Education Resources

By Ben Faulks

The recent passage of the 2013-14 Budget is set to bring massive community benefits to Canberra by expanding the city's health and education facilities.

One of the key results from the Budget is the much-needed addition of resources to the city's two main healthcare centres, Canberra Hospital and Belconnen's very own Calvary Hospital.

The funding will see 31 new beds spread across the two facilities, in addition to increased staffing at Canberra Hospital's Emergency Department.

Millions of dollars will also go into various health initiatives in the region, including a mobile dental care van and funding for the development of the University of Canberra Public Hospital.

The Budget will also allocate funding to promote Canberra as a top place to study to attract international students.

The StudyCanberra program will "promote Canberra's reputation as the learning capital of Australia and a city of first choice for students to further their tertiary education," the chief minister said in an August 16 media release.

The news of the Budget will be well received by those with Belconnen real estate, as the proposed funding will provide additional health resources for the community and enhance the city's appeal for top students from around the world.
