Emergency department choices

Brisbane South PHN has a dedicated website called Emergency Choices for consumers, to guide them on when they should go to the Emergency Department (ED) and when they shouldn’t.

The website, created with the support of Metro South Health, aims to teach the community that Emergency Department (ED) is not always the best option for non-urgent conditions.

It lists many free alternatives including the Healthdirect Symptom Checker, 13 HEALTH telephone service, after hours services and local GPs.
