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.
Two St Vincent’s Private Hospitals in Queensland have emergency medical services provided by independent operators. These independent operators are private fee-for-service emergency departments open 24 hours, 7 days a week.
