Inpatient services

Mater Health and Wellness speech pathologists offer inpatient services to patients of Mater Private Hospital Brisbane for a variety of conditions.

You can arrange for a speech pathology visit by speaking to the patient’s doctor or the ward nurse in charge.

As an inpatient, a referral to speech pathology is usually included as a part of your hospital admission and the costs are covered by your health fund. Additional costs may be required for consumable items such as thickened fluids and communication devices or aids.

Mater Health and Wellness speech pathologists work closely with the multidisciplinary team, patients and their carers to provide a holistic and evidence-based approach that ensures optimal patient care and outcomes. Speech pathology may be required in the following clinical contexts:
