The ACT government is in discussions with Canberra's Calvary Public Hospital about a possible buy out but doctors fear that services could be reduced if the government takes over.
Health Minister Katy Gallagher says no services would be cut if sale went ahead, ABC News reports.
However Australia Medical Association ACT president Paul Jones says the Government should guarantee the existing services in a written agreement.
The ACT nurses' union says it supports the Government's proposition to take over the running of Calvary Public Hospital.
Australian Nursing Federation ACT branch secretary Jenny Miragaya says the takeover would improve efficiency because ACT Health could then coordinate services at both of the Territory's hospitals.
