The Mater


The Mater Hospital has essential safeguards in place to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, these safeguards include important changes to hospital visitation. The following restrictions are now in place (from 13 October 2021) due to the current COVID-19 situation.


  • Partners allowed at any time – where possible, we recommend that partners stay and do not leave the hospital.
  • Partners are counted as part of the visitor limit, therefore if there is a partner, then only 1 additional visitor is allowed (this allows for adequate social distancing within patient rooms).


    • General nursery is closed.

Partners must wear a mask, sign-in using the QR code each time they enter the hospital, complete the screening questionnaire and undergo a temperature check.
