• Emergency department

    Our emergency departments operate 24 hours a day, providing care to patients with a serious illness or injury.

  • Specialist doctor appointments

    Clinics at the hospital where you can see specialist medical and surgical doctors and nurses and don't need a hospital admission. We call these Outpatient Clinics.

  • Day surgery

    When you have day surgery, it's done on the day you come to hospital. You don't need to stay in hospital overnight.

  • Before your surgery

    If you're going to have surgery, find out as much as you can about what will happen. Ask your doctor what your surgery will involve and what you need to do before the surgery.

  • Staying in hospital

    Find out what you need to do if you're going to be staying in hospital.

Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme

If you live in a rural and remote area, and have to travel more than 50 km to your local public hospital, you may be eligible for the Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme. Find out if you're eligible.

The Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme helps with travel and accommodation costs for patients who need to use specialist medical services that aren't available in their local area.

You can read more about the subsidy scheme on the Queensland Government website.
