 AUSTRALIA’S PUBLIC HOSPITALS IN CONSTANT‘STATE OF EMERGENCY’

Launch of AMA Public Hospital Report Card 2017

10.00am, Friday 17 February 2017, AMA NSW, St Leonards, Sydney

 

AMA President, Dr Michael Gannon, and AMA NSW President, Professor Brad Frankum, will today release the AMA Public Hospital Report Card 2017, an AMA analysis of the performance of Australia’s public hospitals.

The AMA Report Card examines public hospital capacity; emergency department waiting and treatment times; and elective surgery waiting and treatment times. It also provides a State-by-State snapshot of performance.

Dr Gannon said that the latest AMA Report Card shows that Australia’s public hospitals – in every State and Territory – are in a constant ‘state of emergency’ due to inadequate funding and over-stretched resources.
