Australian adults report their experiences of more than 20 aspects of health and health care in the latest web update from Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). Information from 2013–14 to 2017–18 is presented by Primary Health Network areas across Australia, on topics including self-reported health status, use of health services and cost barriers to accessing services.
While most Australians rate their health positively, their experiences with the health care system can vary depending on where they live. Results are presented for Primary Health Network (PHN) areas across Australia, providing local-level findings from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Patient Experience Survey 2017–18. Results are also included, where available, from the same surveys conducted in 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16 and 2016–17.
