Develop the concept for a person-centred Comprehensive Cancer Centre integrating clinical and supportive care, clinical trials, research and education and engage stakeholders in preparation for seeking funding for the project.
Moira Clay worked collaboratively with Harry Perkins Institute Director Professor Peter Leedman AO to share the vision for the Comprehensive Cancer Centre with a wide range of stakeholders, reaching out to colleagues across Australia for input, help and support, facilitating stakeholder discussions, implementing a strategy for securing funding, involving the community and people with lived experience of cancer, and developing a compelling narrative and website for the centre.
In March 2022 $375M of funding towards the $750M centre was announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison! Moira and her team are playing a key role in the next stage of planning for the centre.
“Moira was critical to us achieving our first major aim for the Comprehensive Cancer Centre – announcement of $375M funding from the Federal Government. Moira bought exceptional strategic skills to the project as well as strong connections to a highly relevant national network. Her work strengthened the vision for the Centre. Her ability to work collaboratively across all stakeholders helped us stay focused on the bigger picture. I look forward to Moira playing an integral part in this transformative project as it develops in coming years”
