Healthcare in Brisbane

Like all big Australian cities, the standard of healthcare in Brisbane is high and the city has modern, well-equipped hospitals with excellent, highly trained staff. There is a range of private and public medical facilities located throughout Brisbane. If in need of emergency services, expats will be sent to the hospital closest to their place of residence. 

There is no shortage of pharmacies in Brisbane. Most are very well stocked and are able to order in any medication which is not kept on site. Pharmacies in Brisbane can be found on any major shopping street or at shopping malls. Selected pharmacies are open 24/7 and expats should make themselves aware of their closest one in case of an emergency.
