DETAILS FOR QUEST
Some properties provide complimentary parking. If parking is essential and the patient/family are unable to cover their own parking costs, please indicate this and Sony Foundation will also cover the cost. Please note that if there is a need for long stay accommodation, we may request the patient/family stay at a Quest location with free parking.
When a patient is accepted on to the You Can Stay program, we ask that they, and their referring clinician assist with completing some forms for Sony Foundation to secure a rebate from the government to offset some of the costs incurred to provide the accommodation. Please indicate below their eligibility, and note the extra detail required for VIC, QLD and TAS.
If a Patient is NOT ELIGIBLE:
A reason must be submitted at the time of referral for Sony Foundation to submit the stay under special considerations for funding approval. Considerations to include: family under financial difficulty, on a clinical trial, only just fall under the distance to qualify, etc.
If the patient is approved, the stay will only be granted for a maximum of 6 weeks, unless exceptional circumstances. During this time alternative accommodation needs to be arranged.
Thank you for completing the referral form.

If your form has been successfully submitted online, you will receive a confirmation email.
