The University of Queensland’s Endocrine Hypertension Research Centre (EHRC) is based at Greenslopes (GH) and Princess Alexandra Hospitals (GAH) in Brisbane. The Centre is a major clinical referral centre for the management of hypertension. Four Hypertension Clinics weekly (three at PAH and one at GH) plus referrals from private rooms provide a sophisticated diagnostic and treatment service for patients from all over Queensland and Northern NSW, with occasional referrals from further afield including Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania and Asia. Detailed and rigorous inpatient (in demarcated “Hypertension Unit” beds) investigation and treatment protocols are closely supervised by dedicated “Hypertension Unit” nurses. More than 1600 thoroughly studied and documented patients with primary aldosteronism provide a unique resource for further research into causes, diagnosis and treatment, and have led to important collaborations with first-class overseas investigators.
