Brighton Brain Injury Services (BBIS)

The Brighton Brain Injury Service (formerly Jacana Acquired Brain Injury) provides complex and comprehensive rehabilitation for clients with an acquired brain injury (ABI). BBIS accepts referral of clients with acquired brain injury from across Queensland acute hospitals. We work with the client and their families to establish realistic and achievable rehabilitation goals. The goal-setting process includes client and family education about the rehabilitation process and expectations of the program.

How to access services

We accept referral from health professionals from across Queensland. Carers may refer, but it is suggested to contact a health professional to assist the referral process. Please complete in the Brighton Brain Injury Service referral form and email to BrightonBrainInjuryService@health.qld.gov.au There is a fee which includes accommodation, meals, laundry and medications.

Visiting hours and wards

We encourage family and friends to visit our patients during their stay. Visiting hours are flexible, and vary from ward to ward. Some wards/areas have restricted visiting hours due to the nature of care being provided in that particular clinical area and most wards have rest periods. Visitors can ask ward staff about the particular visiting arrangements for the ward where their relative or friend is staying. Visitors are asked to consider the needs of other patients in the room. The nurse unit manager is responsible for the ward and may ask visitors to leave, or restrict visitors during medical and nursing procedures and in emergency situations. Visitors should not attend the hospital if they have a potentially infectious illness (e.g. coughs or colds, gastro symptoms). Children are to be accompanied by an adult at all times. To contact a ward, phone our switchboard on (07) 36317400 and ask to be put through.

Parking and transport

There is on-site parking as well as convenient patient drop-off areas. Bus stops are located adjacent to the campus, on the Hornibrook Highway. The nearest railway stations are at Sandgate and Shorncliffe, with bus connections available.
