Health alert: COVID-19

COVID-19 Alert: We are currently at GREEN traffic light level - there is no restriction for coming to hospital to receive healthcare. Visitors are currently welcome at Metro South Health facilities, and are asked to help keep patients safe by maintaining physical distancing where possible and practising hand hygiene. See visitor restrictions and the latest Queensland Government information.

Waiting lists

If your GP thinks you need to see a specialist doctor, he or she will send us a referral. Our clinical staff will review the referral and prioritise your need for a consultation.

If your referral has been accepted, you will be placed on a wait list for your first “outpatient” appointment with a specialist doctor. After your appointment you may also be placed on an elective surgery wait list.

We are committed to ensuring patients are seen by a specialist within an appropriate timeframe. Read more about how Queensland wait lists work.
