Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on


684. Hon TJORN SIBMA to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the project definition plan for the expansion of the Joondalup Health Campus development stage 2 project.

(1) When did work on the PDP commence and when is this work likely to conclude?

(2) Who within the Department of Health and/or the North Metropolitan Health Service is primarily responsible for drafting the PDP and which other individuals and organisations are also involved?

(3) Regarding part (2), if there is a steering committee or some other such focus group, how many times has this group met to develop the PDP, and on what dates did these meetings occur?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) The project definition plan commenced in May 2019. The PDP is due for completion in September 2019, with endorsement by the Department of Health expected in October 2019.

(2) It is Dr Robyn Lawrence, chief executive of the North Metropolitan Health Service, project sponsor and chair of the project steering committee.

(3) The steering committee includes representation from the North Metropolitan Health Service, Department of Health, Department of Treasury, Department of Finance, State Solicitor's Office and Mental Health Commission. The JHCD2 project was governed by the Department of Health, with Angela Kelly, assistant director general, as project sponsor, until 17 June 2019, when the project transitioned to the North Metropolitan Health Service. The steering committee for the project has met monthly, on the third Friday of each month. The steering committee has met twice—17 May and 18 June—to specifically discuss the PDP.
