Healthcare in Queensland is changing. Queensland Health is investing more than $11 billion in infrastructure projects, and a broad range of programs and initiatives, to relieve pressure on the system.

This includes seven new satellite hospitals to make healthcare more accessible for all Queenslanders and ensures the right care is provided at the right time, in the right location.

Satellite hospitals

Each satellite hospital includes a Minor Injury and Illness Clinics for walk in, urgent treatment of non-life-threatening needs like simple fractures, simple infections, toothaches, minor burns and minor head injuries.

Minor Injury and Illness Clinics will be open 7 days a week, are free for Medicare card holders, and are accessible without an appointment.
