Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital is located on the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre Campus.

The QEII Medical Centre Trust is responsible for the development, management and control of the campus, including services and amenities for patients and visitors ranging from postal services to banking, alternative transport options, eating out, convenience stores, parking and much more.

Full details of patient and visitor amenities available at SCGH and the broader QEII Medical Centre are available on the QEII Medical Centre website (external site).

If you are entering Western Australia under an exemption and have been granted permission on compassionate grounds to visit a patient in hospital within your quarantine period, you must phone ahead to the hospital to arrange this visit to ensure it is managed appropriately.

WHY? Precautions need to be put in place to protect staff and patients while you attend the hospital.

WA’s current travel restrictions are designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by limiting non-essential travel. This includes requiring approval to enter the State and a requirement to self-quarantine for 14 days – in case you are unknowingly carrying the COVID-19 virus.

If you are in self-quarantine you cannot undergo elective surgery. Contact the hospital to reschedule your surgery for when you are cleared from quarantine.

It is an offence to fail to follow the directions stipulated in your exemption. WA Police have the power to enforce these restrictions and you can be fined up to $50,000.

Education is a key mission of Sir Charles Gairdner Osborne Park Health Care Group (SCGOPHCG), as we know continual learning at all levels is key to improving patient care.

You will come across learners in all fields, from students through to senior practitioners and all are bound by rules of ethical behaviour and confidentiality. If you do not wish a learner to be involved you can say no as we recognise you may be unwell or stressed, however most patients learn more about their condition when learners are involved in their care.

If you have any concerns about any interaction, please contact us via email:
