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. [18 January 2023].

Interpreters

We can provide a free interpreter when you are in hospital.

It is our policy to use fully accredited professional interpreters for all medical discussions. Family or friends are usually not able to accurately translate complex medical information.

If you would like an interpreter, please let us know as soon as possible so we can arrange one in advance.

Requesting an interpreter

To request an interpreter, please ask any of the staff in your ward.

Accredited interpreters are free of charge if English is not your first language, or if you use sign language.
