New arrivals will be glad to know that the standard of healthcare in Brisbane is excellent, and that residents here are covered by a universal healthcare programme called Medicare. The city has a range of well-equipped private and public facilities with highly trained staff.

There is also no shortage of pharmacies in Brisbane. Most are very well stocked and are able to order any medication that isn't readily available. Selected pharmacies are open 24/7.
