The Australian Government has granted funds of $722,371 (AU$800,000) to the Royal Hobart Hospital to reduce elective surgery waiting times.

The hospital will receive $298,057 (AU$330,000) to replace four operating tables and $191,512 (AU$212,000) for a telemetry system for the cardiothoracic ward, the government said.

The remaining funds will be used for drying cabinets for day surgery, 12 patient transfer trolleys, a new nurse call system for the neuro surgery ward and an endoscopic probe for the main theatres.

The funding is part of the government’s $542m (AU$600m) Elective Surgery Waiting List Reduction Plan.
