Baillie Henderson Hospital Testing Site Reopens

Darling Downs Health has re-opened the drive-in COVID-19 testing site at the Baillie Henderson Hospital in response to the evolving situation in Brisbane.

The Baillie Henderson testing site in Toowoomba will remain temporarily open 8.30am to 4pm until Thursday, 1 April 2021. Entry to the test site is via the Mort Street entrance only.

Testing helps us find as many cases in the community as quickly as possible. This will ensure we are doing everything we can to manage Queensland’s response to the pandemic.

If you have any of the following symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested.
– Fever
– Sore throat
– Runny Nose
– Diarrhoea
– Loss of smell and/or taste
– Cough
– Shortness of breath
– Fatigue
– Vomiting or nausea.

Alternative testing locations to the Charlton BP and Baillie Henderson Hospital sites can be found at www.qld.gov.au/covid19testing

We are closely monitoring the evolving situation relating to testing demand and are prepared to keep our pop-up drive-in testing sites open longer if needed. We are also prepared to open further pop-up testing sites at short notice if required.

If you are unwell with COVID-19 symptoms and planning to present to one of our hospital facilities for testing, please phone ahead to discuss your arrival with staff. In an emergency, please phone Triple Zero (000).

We ask anyone presenting for COVID-19 testing to understand that waiting times at our testing locations can vary. Please be prepared to wait and bring your Medicare card and other items you may need (for example, your mobile phone, phone charger, medications you may need to take while waiting, food and
water).

For more information about our testing sites, please visit www.health.qld.gov.au/darlingdowns or phone the Darling Downs Health COVID-19 Hotline on 1800 490 468.
