Queensland Geriatric Medicine Group

Providing Integrated Care in Geriatric Medicine

Specialising in managing the medical complexities that come with age, rehabilitation of the older person, and optimising medical management toward healthy ageing. Orthogeriatrics and perioperative management of the older and medical complex person is also our specialty.

Queensland Geriatric Medicine Group currently provides Specialist Geriatric Medicine Services across Brisbane through outpatient care at multiple locations, inpatient care across 4 private hospitals, and community based care including selected nursing homes. Currently, four Consultant Geriatricians provide these services through QGMG and recruitment of additional Geriatricians continues to meet the demand in the private sector. A referral is required to QGMG or directly to our Consultants prior to review. Referrals can be requested from your GP, Surgeon or Physician, so you can access the soonest available appointment with the chosen Geriatrician, or with the first available Geriatrician.

Our principal practice is in Suite 19 at the Greenslopes Specialist Centre and additional consulting rooms include Brisbane Private Hospital Consulting Suites, and Sunnybank Private Hospital in addition to an increasing number of community locations.
