    Other ways to stay in touch

    We suggest that you designate a family member to be the central point of call to keep your family and friends informed of your progress via telephone. We ask that these phone calls are made after 10:30am, allowing for routine patient care activities to be undertaken. All telephone enquiries should be directed to the hospital switchboard on (07) 4120 1200.

    We understand patients can feel isolated while in hospital. Support is available from our Pastoral Care team, which can be arranged by your nurse.

    If you have questions about how these actions will impact on your individual circumstances please speak with your nurse. As always, your health remains our priority.
