Visiting hours

  • Latest information - patient visitor restrictions
    Visitor restrictions remain in place at the Queensland Children’s Hospital and all Children’s Health Queensland facilities, including the Ellen Barron Family Centre and Community Clinics, to ensure we continue to maintain safe access to health care for children. Physical distancing guidelines still play an important role in protecting patients, families and staff as we gradually increase services.
    For more information and the latest updates visit our dedicatedCOVID-19 page.

Patient visiting hours during the COVID-19 pandemic have changed to 8am to 5pm, daily. Under current visitor restrictions, inpatients are permitted two parents or carers from the same household during visiting hours. A single parent/ carer will continue to be able to stay with their child after hours.

Siblings should continue to be limited wherever possible. For parents and carers from separate households, a 10-minute changeover at a child’s bedside will be permitted in between visits.

Feeling unwell?

It’s important that family members and other visitors do not come to the hospital if they are unwell, as they could pass an infection to your child or other children. Please also tell our staff if you or your child has had contact with someone who has recently been sick.
