    You can google 'mater mothers catchment zone'. They are very strict, I work there, live 200m out of the zone and can't get in unless I'm classed ad high risk.

    I googled your postcode deezee and compared it to the published list of acceptable suburbs for mater mothers and sorry but as a public patient you won't be accepted purely because you haven't got the right address. RBWH doesn't have a published list that I've been able to find but they are Northside so it's probably a no-go there as well

    Both RBWH & Mater have their catchment zones.
