Media contacts

Queensland Health is comprised of a corporate office based in Brisbane, 16 independent Hospital and Health Services, as well as the Queensland Ambulance Service which is a separate entity within the health portfolio.

The corporate office (Department of Health) manages media enquiries relating to policy and departmental matters, statewide services and major public health issues. It also manages media for the Hospital and Health Services in rural and remote areas of the state: North West, South West, Central West, and Torres and Cape.

The remaining Hospital and Health Services have their own media teams who manage all local media enquiries including patient condition reports and interview requests.

On this page you will also find links to the Office of the Health Ombudsman and the Queensland Mental Health Commission,  who both, as separate entities, have their own media contacts.
