Emergency department forecourt works

Construction works are currently taking place until mid-year in the Canberra Hospital emergency department (ED) forecourt - the space in front of the Emergency Department. 

The ED forecourt remains open during this time, and will continue to be the main drop-off and pick-up location for emergencies, including ambulances, during the construction period.

The construction work may result in increased activity and congestion in the ED forecourt, so please avoid using this area if possible, except in emergency situations.

Please arrange Canberra Hospital pick-ups/drop-offs at these alternative locations:

  • the main entrance on Hospital Road
  • in front of the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children
  • at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre (Building 19).

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we undertake this construction work.
