The presentations are mostly Triaged as Category 3-5 patients, but there are also some Level 2 patients that require attention. 

Mackay Base Hospital is very close by and any patients considered beyond the scope of the Mater hospital’s duty staff or available facilities can be transferred there for more specialized care.

The Mater advises that locum can expect to average $2000 per night shift and up to $3000 for day shifts.

On public holidays it will be very busy and $4000 would not be out of the question.

Average wait time at Mater Hospital is up to 60 minutes, Mackay Base Hospital is 4-5 hours.
