Brisbane Northside Emergency is an independently owned, fee-for service, private hospital emergency centre.

Since we are an out-patient facility, we are not covered by any insurance system. All private emergency facilities require that you pay a GAP payment of approximately $300. Our emergency centre is located onsite at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital.

Therefore, independently owned radiology and pathology services are available 24 hours a day and are invoiced separately to Brisbane Northside Emergency.

Brisbane Northside Emergency is also not a Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) provider. We cannot process any DVA accounts.

If you are insured by the DVA and your referring doctor has made arrangements, you can be directly admitted for emergency care at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital under your private consultant.

Alternatively, The Prince Charles Emergency Department can manage DVA patients.

Experienced doctors and nurses will see you within moments of arriving (if not immediately).
