The expansion of the Royal Hobart Hospital emergency department will be overseen by a consultant, employed by the state government.
Health Minister Michael Ferguson has called for tenders for a consultant to oversee the ED's expansion and refurbishment, identified in the hospital's 2019 masterplan review.
Mr Ferguson said the successful consultant would incorporate contemporary best practice and models of care, as well as both ACEM and AHFG design guidelines.
The announcement comes after Wednesday's health summit aimed at addressing access block at the RHH.
The state government and Australasian College of Emergency Medicine agreed to finalise an action plan in the days after the meeting, for how agreed solutions would be implemented.
This included a zero tolerance for 24-hour stays in the emergency department and putting in an appropriate system to eliminate ambulance ramping, as soon as possible.
The meeting was criticised by stakeholders, who called less talk and more action.
