Disruptions to some non-urgent services due to extreme weather conditions

27 February 2022

The current extreme weather conditions have impacted the delivery of normal health services across South East Queensland, including those provided by Metro South Health.

As we respond to the impact of the flood emergency, some non-urgent elective surgeries and procedures scheduled on Monday, 28 February will be deferred.

Metro South Health apologises for any inconvenience this may cause to our patients, however, this decision has been taken to minimise non-essential travel so as to ensure the safety of patients and staff. 

The health service is in the process of contacting patients who may be impacted by these changes. 

Patients are welcome to contact individual hospitals to clarify any changes to their scheduled appointments, surgeries and procedures.

We anticipate minimal disruption to urgent care services such as cancer care, maternity care, obstetrics care, and renal dialysis. 

Our Emergency Departments are continuing to operate as normal.
