Elective (planned) surgery waiting times

Elective surgery is non-emergency surgery that is planned in advance. It is surgery which, in the opinion of the treating doctor, can be delayed for at least 24 hours. The treating doctor determines how urgently surgery is needed, then assigns the patient to one of three elective surgery urgency categories – urgent, semi-urgent or non-urgent.

Urological surgery for July 2010–June 2013

This specialty focuses on the organs of the urinary system (such as the kidneys and bladder), including organs of the male reproductive system.

Waiting times for Urology surgery patients for this hospital were considered uncharacteristic when compared with other hospitals. This could reflect differing waiting list practices for patients awaiting ‘staged procedures’ (such as follow-up treatment after initial surgery, or the removal of pins or plates). The data reported may not be comparable to state-based reports which exclude apparently 'staged procedures'.
