Travel assistance

The Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme provides financial help for people who have to travel more than 50km for specialist medical services. This can include assistance with travel and accommodation costs for you and your family member or carer.

An application form must be completed and forwarded to the hospital nearest to your place of residence. This hospital will be responsible for all aspects of your travel and should be your first point of contact for enquiries.

Services covered by the scheme must be recommended by a medical practitioner as being necessary for the health of the patient.

For more information, ask staff for a brochure or contact our Travel Services team on (07) 3176 5011 or (07) 3176 2764.
