Genetic Health Queensland

Welcome to

Genetic Health Queensland

Genetic Health Queensland (GHQ) is a statewide service that provides clinical genetic services across Queensland by a team of specialist health-care professionals. We see individuals and their families with a suspected or known inherited or genetic health condition.

A team of medical specialists (clinical geneticists) and genetic counsellors work together at GHQ to look after patients and families all over Queensland. Regular clinics are held in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns. Telehealth consultations are also available for suitable patients.

The Queensland Cardiac Genetics Clinic, Queensland Renal Genetics Clinic, and the Queensland Familial Cancer Registry (QFCR) are also based within GHQ.
