Following the Queensland Government’s recent announcement of an easing of restrictions, we are pleased to advise that from 4pm Sunday 8 August, our no visitor policy has been lifted. As always, the safety of our patients, staff and doctors is our highest priority so some restrictions will still be in place and we thank you for your understanding.
It’s important for our patients, visitors, doctors and staff to note:
- Anyone entering the hospital will be screened upon entry and required to wear a mask
- Visitors must check in using the QR code
- Visitors can accompany a patient to the foyer area. There are no visitor waiting areas on site, however there is a coffee shop located on the Ground Floor.
You cannot visit if:
- you are currently diagnosed with or recovering from COVID-19
- if you have been in a COVID hotspot
- you have been asked to self-quarantine
- you have had contact with a person with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
- you have a fever (37.5 degrees or more) or a cough, runny nose, sore throat, breathing difficulties, loss of taste and/or loss of smell.

Smoking is banned at all Queensland public and private hospitals and health facilities, and for five metres beyond their boundaries.
The legislation, which was introduced on January 1, 2015, is the Health Legislation Amendment Bill 2014 to Part 8 of the Amendment of Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998.
These no smoking laws apply at all times, and to all staff and patient residential areas on healthcare facility land, and include the use of all smoking products, including regular cigarettes and devices commonly known as electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). The laws cover:
- Land on which any Queensland Health Hospital and Health Service provides health services, including hospitals, community health centres, health clinics, rehabilitation centres and residential aged care facilities
- Land on which a private health facility (private hospitals and day hospitals) provides services.
The laws are enforced by Queensland Health environmental health officers and public facility authorised officers.
Patients, staff or visitors smoking in smoke-free areas may be given a warning to stop smoking, or be asked to move beyond the five metre smoke-free buffer if they wish to continue smoking.
On-the-spot fines apply for breaches of the tobacco laws.
