The NSW Bureau of Health Information (BHI) released its healthcare quarterly report for the period from January to March 2020 which revealed the number of people on elective surgery waiting lists in public hospitals in NSW increased by a total of 8.5 per cent compared with the same period last year.
Healthcare Quarterly is a series of regular reports that track activity and performance for emergency department, elective surgery, admitted patient and ambulance services in NSW. This quarter, a COVID-19 Supplement has also been published providing additional information on public hospital and ambulance activity at NSW level during March, when COVID-19 cases peaked.
