Metro South Health supports the Queensland Government’s Right to Information (RTI) scheme.

Some fees and charges apply to RTI and IP applications.
If you are dissatisfied with Metro South Health’s decision on your access application you can apply to have that decision reviewed.
An application to have a decision internally reviewed must be made within 20 business days of the date of the letter communicating that decision. Please contact us for more information.
You can also apply to have our decision reviewed by the Information Commissioner.
