What to do in an emergency

If you need emergency medical care, call triple zero (000) and ask for an ambulance. Ambulance services are free in Queensland for Queensland residents.

The ambulance paramedics will assess you and decide whether to take you to hospital, treat you at your current location or recommend you visit your GP. If you need emergency hospital care, they will take you to the nearest hospital that has services available at the time of your call.

Our emergency department is operated by the Toowoomba Private Emergency Group. We provide emergency care across most specialties, except for major multi-trauma.

The cost of a review for acute conditions is bulk billed. Because it’s a private emergency facility, a gap payment is charged for other conditions. Fees will be explained to you in more detail on arrival. Independently-owned radiology and pathology services are available 24-hours a day and are invoiced to you separately.

When discharged, your treatment notes will be sent to your GP where appropriate and with your approval.
If you have a concern about your condition following your discharge from the Emergency Department, please return immediately for reassessment.

The Emergency Department is accessible via Entrance 6 on Herries Street. Short-term parking for patient drop-off and collection is available directly outside the entrance doors. Longer-term parking is available in the nearby car park.
