Offering world-class psychiatrists through our private clinic

We employ some of the best psychiatrists in Cairns and throughout QLD, to ensure your treatment is of the highest standards.
Our mental health services provide a wide range of treatments, including assistance with those suffering from depression and anxiety to drug and alcohol dependence. Our trained psychiatrists and other speciality staff members will guide you through every step of the recovery process, keeping your care and wellbeing at the forefront of every action we put into place.
Ramsay Cairns – ‘People caring for People’
Ramsay Cairns has three facilities - Cairns Private Hospital, Cairns Day Surgery and The Cairns Clinic. Ramsay Cairns is committed to offering a caring and supportive experience for patients and their carers whilst at our facilities. We believe in partnering with our consumers to create a health service which is responsive to the needs of patients and carers in our community.
Waiting period exemption for psychiatric care benefits
The Federal Government’s private health insurance reforms now allows eligible consumers an instant policy upgrade to cover a private psychiatric hospital admission without serving a waiting period*. The changes, which make it easier for policy holders to access mental health services when they need it, came into effect on 1 April 2018.
*The waiting period does not apply to upgrades where consumers have already served their 2 month waiting period on lower cover policies.
