Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are experiencing an increased number of people presenting to our Emergency Departments for treatment of COVID-19. A number of our staff are also impacted by COVID-19, and as a result we are experiencing longer-than-usual emergency department waiting times. Metro South Health will continue to treat the most urgent cases first (Category 1). Please do not attend the emergency department unless it is an emergency. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we prioritise our most urgent cases.

Fully vaccinated visitors may attend our facilities. Please refer to the visitor restrictions for more information. 
Find out where to get tested at one of our fever clinic locations, where to get vaccinated, our COVID-19 response and read the latest Queensland Government information.

Consumers in research

Health service consumers and community members, are people with an interest in supporting the research activities of Metro South Health.

Metro South Health recognises that maximising the benefits of health research requires a community that guides and supports our research efforts. This involves informed consumers who participate in research and employees who effectively apply their knowledge and skills.

In addition to the provision of evidence becoming a compulsory component of many research funding schemes, researcher utilisation of the insight, experience and advice of consumers and community members is increasingly relevant to the development and undertaking of relevant research priorities and projects across Metro South Health.

Listed below are some guides, tools and existing mechanisms to assist individual researchers, research groups or departments to access this valuable input.
