GHQ accepts referrals for individuals or couples who have an increased likelihood of having a child with a genetic condition, based on a known or suspected genetic diagnosis in the parent, family or current pregnancy.  The service prioritises prenatal referrals based on the Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC).  GHQ is a statewide service with genetic counsellors in all the major maternal fetal medicine units within Queensland Health – Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Gold Coast University Hospital, Sunshine Coast University Hospital and Townsville Hospital.

If you or your patient is pregnant and require more information regarding whether or not to refer for a genetic consultation, please contact our prenatal genetic counsellor on (07) 3646 1686, who can provide further information.  If you wish to refer a patient in pregnancy, please mark your referral as urgent.
