We wish to inform patients and visitors that the lifts in the Point Parking Car Park (multi-story car park on Butterfield Street) are currently out of order as a result of flood damage. While the repairs are underway, we advise that patients with mobility issues should park on level 3 of the car park which links directly to the hospital. Alternately, patients can be dropped off outside the main entrance to RBWH.

Point Parking are working hard to restore the lifts as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Have you heard the moooos? After more than two decades, people who lived in the United Kingdom during the mad cow disease outbreak (1980-1996) can now donate blood in Australia! 🐮

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood has advised that removing this rule ensures that Australias blood supply remains one of the safest in the world, while allowing for up to 58,000 additional donations each year.

I lived in the UK in the 1980s which meant I was never able to donate blood. They have lifted the rules recently so I am looking forward to being able to donate, said Dr David Freidin, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at #RBWH. 

When you practice in emergency, the readiness and availability of blood is very important. The more donations the better. 

If you can, book a donation at https://app.lifeblood.com.au/qldDonateBlood

Epilepsy is like an electrical storm inside the head, which affects around 1 percent of our Australian population. 🧠🌩  

As an #RBWH neurophysiology scientist, Nericha performs nerve conduction studies, visual and somatosensory evoked potentials, as well as automatic function testing but says electroencephalograms (EEG) for epileptics are her bread and butter.  

“Our EEG machine shows us what the brainwaves are up to and any unusual activity that can look like spikes or abnormal waves formed,’ Nericha said. 

“The different patterns can tell us the type of epilepsy they have so if someone is suffering from general epilepsy, you can see that the entire brain is being affected, whereas focal epilepsy would only show that a certain part of the brain is being affected.”

My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 2 years ago, when he was 59. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from TREE OF LIFE HEALTH CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the TREE OF LIFE HEALTH Parkinson's disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 61 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (w w w. treeoflifeherbalclinic .com)

Did you know Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Queensland are now eligible for a forth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine? 🙌

#RBWH Cultural Capability Officer Geoffrey Binge was one of the first in line to receive his forth dose recently and wants to encourage members of his community to do the same.
 
“I wanted to get my forth COVID vaccine to protect myself, my family and my community. It’s also a great opportunity for me to demonstrate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people that COVID can be managed,” said Geoff.
 
“I know there are a few reasons why Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people might not be up to date with their vaccines. To these people I would say, just be aware of what is going on in the wider community and understand that COVID isn’t going away anytime soon.
 
“Getting vaccinated is a key part of staying healthy and will allow you continue to enjoy all the great activities we are part of. We need to look after each other, especially our older people and those with weaker immune systems who are more vulnerable.” 💗

Meet #RBWH Neurosurgery department’s first-ever spine fellow, Dr Patrick Pearce! 👋  

Over the last twelve months Patrick has managed to complete 160 spinal surgeries, treating patients for conditions including disc disease, nerve tumours and even performing the occasional spine reconstruction. 🦴 

“We’re a little different to orthopaedic specialists because we work within the dura or connective tissue of the spine itself as opposed to just the spine,” Patrick said.  

“We keep the spine safe within the dura by performing procedures aimed at decompressing the spine’s nerves with the goal of improving a patient’s ability to walk and their quality of life. 

“Some of the most complex cases we do involves decompressing spinal nerves compressed by tumours by removing certain discs or parts of the spine and replacing it with instrumentation.”

My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 2 years ago, when he was 59. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from TREE OF LIFE HEALTH CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the TREE OF LIFE HEALTH Parkinson's disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 61 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! (w w w. treeoflifeherbalclinic .com)

Meet #RBWH Neurosurgery department’s first-ever spine fellow, Dr Patrick Pearce! 👋  

Over the last twelve months Patrick has managed to complete 160 spinal surgeries, treating patients for conditions including disc disease, nerve tumours and even performing the occasional spine reconstruction. 🦴 

“We’re a little different to orthopaedic specialists because we work within the dura or connective tissue of the spine itself as opposed to just the spine,” Patrick said.  

“We keep the spine safe within the dura by performing procedures aimed at decompressing the spine’s nerves with the goal of improving a patient’s ability to walk and their quality of life. 

“Some of the most complex cases we do involves decompressing spinal nerves compressed by tumours by removing certain discs or parts of the spine and replacing it with instrumentation.”
