Dr Nalini Pati remembers

seeing a young woman at the National Referral Hospital in Honiara having difficulty breathing because her lymph node had swollen to such a size it was restricting her airway.

Australia and Solomon Islands

Most of us would like to die at home

, very few of us do. The stark facts are that 86 per cent of Australians will spend the days and weeks before their death in a hospital ward or residential care. But Palliative Care ACT is developing an Australian-first concept called the Hub that will fundamentally change those last weeks for patients and carers.

The chief executive

officer of the John James Foundation says the sale of the hospital has doubled the pool of cash it can distribute to Canberra organisations and expects to donate $500,000 this year.

Calvary John James Hospital

buildings have been sold for more than $100 million,  in a move the hospital’s foundation says will allow it to invest more in the community.

But one of the hospital’s founders is angry at a lack of consulation and has called on the board to be sacked.

The property was purchased from the John James Foundation by Barwon Investment Partners which the board says will ensure the campus stays a hospital for at least 99 years.
