Your feedback required regarding Digital Hospital.

Posted on September 4, 2017

As you may have heard, Metro South Health have proposed changes to introduce the Digital Hospital project at Logan Hospital, Beaudesert Hospital and the new Wynnum-Manly Community Health Centre (Gundu Pa). See more info about that here.

Metro South Health have recently advised us that the arrangements for the Digital Hospital project for Redland Hospital, the Marie Rose Centre on North Stradroke Island and the new “Pandanus” inpatient ward at Casuarina Lodge are anticipated to “go live” by May/June 2018.

Over the last few months I have already spoken with some of you regarding what the proposed changes may look like for the Redlands and Bayside area. Unfortunately, due to a lack of information and real timeframes we did not have a lot to go on apart from what the HHS are currently doing at Logan Hospital, Beaudesert Hospital and Gundu Pa.

As part of the proposed changes the HHS has advised that recreation leave applications/approvals between February and July 2018 are limited. See the letter here.

Let us know what you think. Email your feedback to by 5pm Monday 18 September so we can collate and raise any questions or concerns with management.
