Transport and transfers

Transport home

You will need to arrange for a relative or friend to take you home.  Alternatively, staff may help you to call a taxi if you do not have a relative or friend to assist you.  Please be aware that transport costs are your responsibility.

Ambulance transport

Even if you came to hospital by ambulance, you can only leave the hospital by ambulance if it is medically recommended. Please plan ahead and make private arrangements for your trip home on the day of discharge. If you have concerns, please approach your health care team to discuss.

Taking your baby home

By law, all babies must be transported in a correctly fitted baby capsule. These can be hired from Kidsafe Queensland.

Transfer to another hospital

If you need special health care that is not available locally, you may be transferred to a hospital or centre where the treatment can be provided.
